Kamloops jail cell sex report now with Attorney General

Investigators in Kamloops, B.C., have concluded a probe into an incident where four Mounties and three jail guards allegedly watched two women have sex in a jail cell.

RCMP Insp. Yves Lacasse would not reveal what is in the report but confirms it has been delivered to the Attorney General's office.

He says the ministry will select one of the province's Crown counsel offices to review the details and determine if further action is required.

Four RCMP officers and three Kamloops jail guards were suspended with pay in the wake of the Aug. 18 incident, although two of the jail staff have since been cleared of wrongdoing.

Surveillance footage from the jail allegedly shows four Mounties and three civilian jail staff watching a video monitor for seven minutes.

The women were being held in the jail's "drunk tank" when the sex act occurred and RCMP have said because of their intoxication, the main concern for investigators was the women's level of consent.
