"Joshua Ryan Harrison, 27, was charged with two counts of Sexual Battery (Custodial Authority) and one count each of Battery and Introduction of Contraband in a Juvenile Detention Facility. The victims were 17 years old when the crimes happened.

He formerly worked for the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice. Harrison was fired Feb. 4.

Pinellas sheriff’s detectives said they began their investigation Jan. 30 after Department of Juvenile Justice staff at the Pinellas Regional Juvenile Detention Facility in Clearwater notified deputies of suspicion that one of their juvenile detention officers was involved in inappropriate conduct with juveniles at the facility.

Detectives say staff at the detention facility initially heard rumors that Harrison was passing notes and bringing food and contraband to juveniles at the facility. Staff at the detention center conducted an independent investigation and confirmed Harrison was on surveillance video bringing food and drinks to juvenile inmates.

Detectives identified three 17-year-old male juveniles that, they said, were victimized by Harrison during January. "
