CLOVIS, N.M. -- A former Roosevelt County sheriff's deputy will spend five years in prison for raping a female inmate.
Gary Adkins, 47, was sentenced this week in Clovis. The victim was in the Roosevelt County jail for a probation violation last year when Adkins drove her to a rural road and assaulted her.
The 24-year old woman was in her jail clothes and in handcuffs during the incident.
Adkins has served five months in jail which will be credited toward the five-year sentence.
