Corrections officer charged with CSC involving inmate.


LUDINGTON — A former corrections deputy at the Mason County Jail has been charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct (CSC) stemming from an “inappropriate relationship” he allegedly had with a woman who had been an inmate at the jail, according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

Brad Jany, who has since been fired his position, was criminally charged Wednesday, March 11, after turning himself in to authorities, Cole said.

“The Mason County Sheriff’s Office initiated an investigation into a reported ‘inappropriate relationship’ that allegedly involved an MCSO corrections deputy and a female, who had prior to the alleged relationship, been an inmate in the Mason County Jail on Oct. 23, 2019,” Cole stated in a press release. “Upon learning this information, the deputy was immediately placed on administrative leave pending this investigation.

“The sheriff ordered an internal investigation of this matter, which was conducted by MCSO detectives. The investigation concluded on Nov. 20, 2019 at which time the report was sent to the Mason County Prosecutor’s Office for review and issuance of a warrant. On Dec. 10, 2019, the deputy’s employment with the MCSO was terminated.

“On Feb. 27, 2020, detectives swore to a felony warrant for Brad Jany charging him with one count of CSC in the second degree, a 10-year felony. He turned himself in to the court on March 11, 2020.”

“Mr. Jany had been a member of the sheriff’s office for approximately two years. The incident surrounding Mr. Jany did not take place while he was on duty. It is to have allegedly involved a sexual relationship with a female he had met while she was incarcerated in the Mason County Jail. The investigation revealed the relationship started after she was released from the jail.”
