A Gatesville corrections officer was arrested last Friday on charges that he had a sexual relationship with an inmate.

David Stuart Tatarian, 27, was employed at the Crain Unit from August 23, 2012 to April 7, 2013. “It was a total of nine months,” said Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman John Hurt. Tatarian reportedly resigned when the criminal investigation into the allegations began.

“Any allegation like this is always investigated and it’s not something we tolerate at any unit,” said Hurt.

Tatarian turned himself in to Killeen Police Department on Friday. He’s charged with four counts of sexual contact with a person in custody.

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice Inspector General has conducted the investigation into this case.
