The latest news from around the state
Prosecutors say they have video of the Juba entering the cell of a female inmate in May.
His attorney denied all the allegations and suggested that the inmate making the allegations of sexual misconduct is doing so out of retribution.
Juba has been suspended from his position.
Along with the sexual contact charges, authorities are looking at whether the defendant brought drugs, food and a cellphone into the facility.
He is due back in court next month.
