The FBI has been asked to step in and investigate allegations of sexual misconduct involving staff and inmates at the Clallam County Jail in Washington state, the Associated Press reports.

Clallam County Sheriff Bill Benedict told the Peninsula Daily News that he had asked the  FBI to step in , the AP reported.

A Bureau of Justice Statistics report “ranked the jail the third-highest among 286 U.S. jails for instances of inmate-reported sexual misconduct by staff,” AP reported.

The report stated that 6.1 percent of 75 inmates surveyed said they were sexually assaulted by staff, and 4.4 percent said they sexually assaulted by fellow inmates, AP reported.
