Luciano Pablo Betancourt
A detention officer who resigned last month amid an investigation into inappropriate relationship with a female inmate had previously been reprimanded for similar behavior, according to documents in his personnel file. Luciano Betancourt was arrested Sept. 4 on the charge of violation of oath by a public officer after a former inmate told investigators the two had been involved in a romantic relationship while she was still incarcerated. According to Deputy Sheriff Greg Rowan, the relationship reportedly occurred while the inmate was on work release and while Betancourt was off duty. A written reprimand dated July 23, 2017 states that while reviewing camera footage for an unrelated reason, an officer noted that Betancourt had spent time with two females in a certain cell block every shift he worked over a span of 16 days.
