A Pima County jail officer has been arrested in connection with having sexual contact with female inmates, the department said.

Corrections Officer Jorge Renteria-Urias was booked into the Pima County jail on nine charges of unlawful sexual conduct in a correctional facility, the Pima County Sheriff's Department said in a news release Friday.

The department said it began an investigation Wednesday after receiving information about alleged inappropriate contact between a corrections officer and female inmates.

Renteria-Urias is on unpaid leave from his job pending his termination, the agency said.
