Probation Officer Facing More Charges

A Warren County probation officer already facing charges for allegedly groping a woman he supervised faces more charges for allegedly harassing another woman.

State police charged 37-year-old Jeffrey Collins of Sheffield with two counts each of indecent assault and harassment along with official oppression for sending "lewd text messages" to and grabbing the "breasts and buttocks area" of a 50-year-old woman on probation he oversaw through the Warren County Adult Probation office between Dec. 18 and March 6.

Collins was already suspended without pay for a similar situation police say happened between Feb. 10 and March 2.

Police say they uncovered the newest occurrence of apparent harassment while investigating the other incident.
