(S.D.)-Officials Say Former Jailer Accused Of Rape Arrested

By: Dennis and Kathi Brown Posted at: 02/18/2014 04:19 PM
     HOT SPRINGS, S.D. (AP) - The Fall River County state's attorney's office says a former jailer who fled the state following allegations that he raped a female inmate has been apprehended in Ohio.
 
      30-year-old Anthony Peet of Oral was arrested Saturday in Bryan, Ohio. Authorities in Fall River County had issued a warrant for his arrest on a charge that he raped the inmate in January.
 
     Attorney information for Peet was not immediately available.
 
     Fall River County Sheriff Rich Mraz (mur-'AZ) says authorities plan to get Peet extradited so he can face the charges.
 
     Mraz says Peet was employed for about eight months at the Fall River County Jail in Hot Springs, which also houses prisoners from Shannon County. The inmate who made the complaint has since been released.
