RUSSELL – Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents arrested a former detention officer of the Russell County Jail who allegedly had sex with inmates. 

Frank D. Alexander, 42, of Russell, was arrested at approximately 2:30 p.m. Thursday for two counts of unlawful sexual relations. The arrest occurred without incident at 1105 N. Fossil St. in Russell.

On Oct. 24, 2018, the Russell County Sheriff requested the KBI investigate allegations made against Alexander, an employee of the jail. Alexander was then fired on Nov. 8. 

The KBI presented case findings to the County Attorney on Nov. 30.

Following his arrest, Alexander was booked into the Russell County Jail, and was then transferred to a nearby jail. He also had his first court appearance Thursday.
