Jailer charged for sex with inmates has new charge

Posted: Updated:

BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - A former Jefferson County jailer who faces trial on charges he had sex with female inmates is now charged with selling alcohol to a minor who later died in a crash on Interstate 15.

The Montana Standard reports (http://bit.ly/1qfMGaC) 45-year-old Rodney Mortimore was cited with two counts of selling alcohol to someone under the age of 21 on June 25 while working at a Boulder convenience store.

The charges stem from an investigation into a fatal crash in which an underage driver was intoxicated and speeding the wrong way on the interstate. The citations do not name those involved in the crash, but 20-year-old Samuel Kenton Williams of Stand Off, British Columbia, was killed and his 15-year-old passenger injured in a wrong-way crash between Butte and Boulder early on June 26.

Mortimer has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
