    Daniel Brown, 54, has been charged with second-degree sexual assault and procuring alcohol for a minor in Rhode Island

    A Rhode Island state staffer for the governor's office has been charged with sexual assault.

    Daniel Brown, 54, was charged Tuesday with second-degree sexual assault and procuring alcohol for a minor. A spokesman for Gov. Gina Raimondo says Brown is immediately being placed on paid administrative leave pending an internal investigation.

    Brown was stabbed last week by the 18-year-old male he is accused of sexually assaulting and is recovering.

    Providence police say he will be arraigned in his hospital bed by a bail commissioner. Brown worked in Raimondo's Constituent Affairs office and has worked for the state since 2003. It is not immediately clear if Brown has an attorney from a search of electronic court records.
