Prosecutors seek indictments in city jail sex scandal

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Prosecutors are seeking indictments in last week's alleged sex scandal at the Richmond city jail. For some, this is pretty shocking news involving deputies who worked with criminals.

Now we are expecting the Commonwealth's Attorney's Office to seek criminal indictments against the two deputies who police say are apart of this sex scandal.

We first told you about this story last week involving deputies Matthew Lyttle and Mark Kelly.

Richmond Sheriff C.T. Woody fired both deputies last week for allegedly having sexual contact with two female inmates at the jail.

That charge came after an internal affairs investigation.

Both inmates have been transferred to other facilities, which is standard protocol.

As for the two deputies facing charges, if they are convicted, the two face a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
