A Natchitoches Parish corrections officer who had just been promoted to a supervisory position is now in jail himself, charged with raping a female inmate.
He’s 28-year-old Lindsey Webster Hoke.
Sheriff Victor Jones says the inmate reported the attack on the 4th of July.
Sheriff Jones stated “We hold each and everyone of our employees at a very high standard of professionalism, and integrity. It is mandatory that all deputies obey the oath of office, state law, ethics, and standard operating procedures of the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office, I will not tolerate this type of behavior when a deputy decides to abuse his authority and responsibility to serve the people of Natchitoches Parish.”
Hoke has been a corrections officer for six years.
