Sexual assault allegations in Miller Co. jail
Thu, 23 Jun 2011 00:31:09 GMT —
Last month, Miller County jailer R yan Cole was fired and charged for having inappropriate contact with inmates. In the probable cause statement we got from the Miller County Prosecutors office we found Cole didn't have relations with just one woman, but three. The women's names are Vicky Riggs, Teresa Hahn, and Geneva Parkhurst. Cole admitted to having sexual intercourse with all three women while they were in jail. It only took two weeks from when the sheriff learned about the incidents to when a judge actually sentenced Cole. He will serve five years probation for his two convictions of having sexual contact with an inmate. KRCG has been in contact with one of the victims, Geneva Parkhurst since last week. We spoke with her attorney Wednesday, she's now accusing cole of a more serious offense, sexual assault. Parkhurst believes the other two women were also assaulted. Miller County Sheriff Bill Abbott did not return our call.
