On September 8, the victim was given a forensic interview at the Montgomery County child’s advocacy center.

Hunter was booked into the Montgomery County Jail Saturday on charges of aggravated sexual battery.

The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office announced Monday Hunter had resigned, effective immediately.

According to DSCO Chief of Staff Karla West, Hunter worked at the DCSO for 15 years. He most recently worked as a prisoner processor at the Downtown Detention Center booking room.
