Clark County Corrections Deputy Christopher A. North, center, leaves the courtroom after making a first appearance in Clark County Superior Court in Vancouver, Wash., Thursday, July 27, 2017. North has been charged with sexually assaulting a female inmate in a Clark County, Washington jail as the woman was preparing for a transfer to an Oregon facility.

A Clark County Corrections Deputy accused of ejaculating on a female inmate was fired last week, the county sheriff’s office announced Monday.

Christopher A. North’s employment was terminated last Thursday. He hired as a Clark County Corrections deputy in January 2015 and was placed on paid leave July 13.

A 24-year-old woman reported North, 29, exposed his penis to her while she was locked in a changing room in civilian clothes awaiting transportation to the Clackamas County Jail two days earlier, according to a probable cause affidavit. North then entered the room, pressed his body against hers, ejaculated on her and left, the court papers said.

Christopher A. North, 29, is accused of indecent liberties with forcible compulsion and second-degree custodial sexual misconduct. He has been a Clark County Corrections deputy since January 2015 and has been on paid administrative leave since July 13.

The woman was held in the changing room for two hours waiting for a transport van to take her to Clackamas County because temporary holding cells at the Clark County Jail were already occupied, the affidavit said. She reported the incident after she was brought to the Clackamas County Jail because she feared retaliation in Clark County.

North told investigators he stole the woman’s pants from her property bag while on duty, went to his car during a lunch break, ejaculated on them twice and returned the pants to her property bag, the affidavit said. He said he didn’t think she would know it was him who stained her pants, the court papers said.

North turned himself in to authorities on July 26. He is accused of second-degree custodial sexual misconduct and indecent liberties with forcible compulsion. He has since been released from jail after posting a portion of his $50,000 bail, Washington court records show.
