The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office has filed a complaint about a bondsman being inside the jail allegedly soliciting business.
The complaint filed with the three Criminal Court judges was filed against Dexter Higgins of Key Bonding.
An officer said he was assigned to prisoner intake and was filling out paperwork when he saw bondsman Higgins at the door. He said he let him in.
He said, "I finished my paperwork and I noticed he was just standing near Kenneth Freeman, an inmate that was brought in by Officer Van Hooser.
"I asked him if he was surrendering a bond and he stated no that he was just here to make inmate Freeman's bond. I then told him he needed to exit my intake area immediately. He kept saying OK as he was trying to look at the paperwork on Freeman.
"I then told him he was not to be in intake at all unless he had a legitimate reason and that he had to leave now. At that point he left the intake area. I reported it to Lt. Knight at that point."
Bondsman Higgins was one of the focal points at a recent lengthy hearing where various bonding agents listed complaints with the judges.
