SAN LUIS, OBISPO (AP) -- A former jailhouse officer in San Luis Obispo County was charged with flashing a female inmate and having others expose themselves in exchange for candy bars.

A pretrial hearing is scheduled next week for Steven Irysh, 23, who was charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure and being a jail employee engaging in sexual activity with a confined person.

Irysh has pleaded not guilty. If convicted, he faces up to 18 months in jail.

Prosecutor Steve Brown said the former County Jail officer allegedly offered the candy bars and would deliver notes to male inmates in exchange for female inmates flashing him.
