A Zanesville corrections officer is being charged with disorderly conduct against a fellow corrections officer. Charges were filed after the Zanesville Police Department began investigations on Officer, Richard Saylor for sexual harassment. The investigations began on May 18 when a female officer complained that Saylor was using inappropriate gestures and language. This is not the first time complaints have been made against Saylor who has been with the department since 1985. Chief Eric Lambes said Saylor’ has had two similar complaints about him in the past, but one officer didn’t want to pursue it and the other time, there wasn’t enough evidence to pursue. Saylor, who maintains his innocence, will answer to the disorderly conduct charge tomorrow in court. The department is also conducting an administrative investigation, which is still being completed. If the Administrative investigation finds Saylor guilty of disorderly conduct, the punishment could be anywhere from a reprimand to termination of his job.
