ADAMS COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) A former inmate of the Adams County jail is now suing the sheriff and two correctional officers claiming one of those officers raped her multiple times.

According to court documents, Miranda Roberts says Officer Jared Bultemeyer raped her four times between January and February while she was incarcerated on drug charges.

Roberts also claims an un-named female officer knew or should have known the assaults were taking place and didn’t do anything about it.

Adams County Sheriff Shane L. Rekeweg is being sued for failing to adequately train and supervise Bultemeyer and the un-named officer.

Roberts is currently serving a three-year sentence in prison.
