Allred Corrections Officer Charged With Sex Crime Against Inmate

Nearly two years ago an inmate serving time at Allred came forward claiming former Correctional Officer Richard Carter forced him to perform sexual acts.  Yet, Carter was arrested just three months ago.

Part of Richard Carter's job was to supervise prisoners, now he could soon find himself behind bars.

This after an incident that occurred on November third of 2008 when an inmate at the James V. Allred Unit accused then-officer Carter of using threats and force to perform sexual acts.

An arrest affidavit filed by Wichita County Deputies say the victim supplied evidence for authorities to test.

Carter also voluntarily gave a swab of his DNA for laboratory analysis.  That was back in December of 2008.

At the time of the investigation, Carter transferred to the Michael Unit in East Texas where he would remain until his resignation.

Two years later, the reports came back.  The DNA was a match and Carter was arrested on May 12 in East Texas.

Law enforcement says when they showed carter the evidence he confessed that the incident did occur.  Yet, told investigators that a no time did he force the victim to perform sexual acts.

Now, Carter is out on a $5,000 bond and resigned from his position in East Texas on May 31.

The victim is currently at the McConnell Unit in Beeville, Texas.  He has five charges he is doing time for, from impersonating a public servant to theft.

We have left several calls and emails about this investigation with questions about why it took two years for the DNA results to come back.
