The Butte County Sheriff's Office reportedly received information that 32-year-old Deputy Ryan Woolery had become involved in a relationship with a female inmate. The Butte County DA's Office stepped in and conducted an investigation where they learned that the Deputy Woolery and the inmate had allegedly engaged in a consensual intimate relationship. Despite being consensual authorities say the conduct was inappropriate and unlawful. Woolerly was arrested and he resigned from his position. Woolery posted bail and will appear in court on October 21st.
