Inmate charged with sexual assault

LAWRENCEVILLE -- A male inmate at the Gwinnett County Jail faces additional charges after authorities say he sexually assaulted a female inmate last week.

Lawrenceville resident Quincy Rogers, 39, was designated as an inmate worker and was cleaning the jail's admissions area when the assault happened, an official said Thursday. Rogers has been jailed since July on felony charges of drug possession and for probation violations, records show.

According to an arrest warrant, Rogers violated the woman with his left hand the afternoon of Sept. 1. The alleged victim, of Loganville, was booked Aug. 31 for violating terms of probation that trace back to an earlier traffic arrest.

The Daily Post does not identify victims in sexual assault cases.

Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Stacey Bourbonnais said the woman was not injured and did not make an outcry.

"It was brought to our attention the next day by other inmates," Bourbonnais said.

Rogers was immediately removed from worker status and placed in maximum security, she said.

He faces an additional felony charge of aggravated sexual battery. As before, he has no bond.

Bourbonnais said inmates, who are classified upon entry to the jail, are assigned worker status based on current charges, past history and disciplinary history.
