Jail employee arrested, charged with sexual abuse of inmate

Cochise County Sheriff’s Office has arrested one of the Bisbee jail’s employees for multiple charges including sexual abuse of an inmate.

After investigating the claims, CCSO arrested 63 year old Doug Packer Saturday morning for Sexual Abuse, Sexual Assault, and Unlawful Sexual Conduct in a correctional facility.

Officials say the CCSO staff was informed on Friday of an inmate claiming an inappropriate incident had taken place at the Bisbee jail.

After an investigation, Packer was arrested and booked in Cochise County Jail.

Cochise County Sheriff Dannels said, “Chaplain Packer was in a position of community trust and based solely on his actions and poor decisions, he violated his sacred oath of office.”

Officials say the investigation is still on-going and encourage anyone with information to contact the sheriff’s office at 520-432-9500.
