Former Georgia detention officer charged with rape

A former detention officer in Georgia has been arrested and faces rape and other charges after police say he held a woman in her home.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said in a news release that 28-year-old Kirk Taylor Martin of Acworth is also charged with aggravated sexual battery, aggravated assault, criminal attempt to commit sodomy, false imprisonment, and obstructing an emergency call.

Martin formerly worked for the Murray County Jail.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Greg Ramney said the woman was held March 7 into the early part of March 8 before she was able to contact someone outside the home.

Murray County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Jimmy Davenport said Martin was fired last April for jail policy violations.

It was not known if Martin has an attorney.
