Former Greene County corrections officer indicted on sexual battery charges involving an inmate

GREENE COUNTY — A former Greene County corrections officer was indicted on sexual battery charges that involved a female inmate, according to investigators and court records.

Antonio Goodman, 37, of Fairborn, was indicted Wednesday on two counts of sexual battery stemming from an investigation into the allegation of a sexual relationship with the inmate, Greene County Sheriff Gene Fischer said in a media release Thursday.

The incidents occurred between July 3, 2019 and February 25, 2020 at the Greene County Jail, Fischer said.

“Information regarding allegations of a sexual relationship between the inmate and Goodman became known to jail supervisors. The detective section of the Greene County Sheriff’s Office conducted an extensive investigation,” Fischer said in a media release.

Goodman resigned from his position after the allegations surfaced, investigators told News Center 7.

A special prosecutor from the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office was appointed to the case and presented the case to a Greene County grand jury Wednesday. Goodman was arrested after a warrant was issued and he was released on an own recognizance bond, Fischer said.

The date of Goodman’s arraignment on the charges was not immediately available. A photo or mugshot of Goodman was also not immediately available.
