OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The chaplain of a minimum security prison for women has resigned after he was accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a female inmate.
The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says Chaplain Don Dickerson resigned Tuesday after his arrest last week on a complaint of rape by instrumentation.
The 57-year-old corrections employee since 2000 was chaplain at the Kate Barnard Correctional Center in Oklahoma City. Corrections officials say they launched an investigation after learning of a possible inappropriate relationship between Dickerson and a female inmate.
Dickerson was arrested at the prison on Friday after he and the inmate were interviewed by investigators.
Officials say the investigation is ongoing.
