KHQ.Com Exclusive: Spokane Jail Deputy Fired For Putting His Hands Down Co-Workers Pants

SPOKANE, Wash. -  A Spokane County Jail Deputy who was fired for putting his hands down a female employees underwear is fighting to get his job back.
 
Corrections Deputy Keith Babor was fired last November after the female employee testified that he said out loud to a group of people playing cards in the jail that she "had no gag reflex."  Internal investigation documents say he admitted that he made the remark because he had a recent romantic relationship with this female employee. 
 
Near  August 15, 2009, Deputy Babor approached the same female  and said he was sorry for making the comment.  Investigators say when he did this, he told the female "there are no camera's here."  The female employee reported to the Sheriff that on or about August 15, 2009 Deputy Babor approached the same female from behind and put his hands on her hips.  The woman said this touching was not welcomed and unsolicited. 
 
In that same time period, the female employee said Deputy Babor approached her and "placed one hand on the outside of her pants and over the crotch area."  The female said she pushed back and at that point, Deputy Babor "put his hand inside her underwear over her vagina".  The Female told the Sheriff this was "unsolicited and unwelcomed touching".
 
Deputy Babor has no prior allegations of misconduct on his service record and his Union Representative, Gordon Smith, told our Bill McGinty that the Deputy disputes some of the facts used in the investigation that led to his termination.  The case is likely headed for arbitration.
