A Brazoria County Sheriff’s deputy accused of inappropriately touching female drivers he pulled over on traffic stops has been indicted.
Jason Burrows was charged with four counts of official oppression after two women came forward about incidents this year, said Captain Chris Kincheloe with the sheriff’s office.
One woman initially reported the incident to another agency, Kincheloe said. The Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office then launched their own investigation. During that investigation, another woman came forward and filed a complaint against Burrows.
The case was taken to the grand jury, where the deputy was indicted on four counts. Burrows surrendered and was arrested Monday. He was released that day on $25,000 bail, according to Brazoria County court records.
Burrows had been with the sheriff’s office for just over a year, working with the patrol division on the north end of the county, Kincheloe said.
