A request for Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation assistance by the Kingfisher County Sheriff’s Department in October 2019 has led to the arrest of a Guthrie man in the alleged rape of an inmate.
Andy Rios, 31, of Guthrie was employed as a detention officer for Kingfisher at the time of the incident. Rios has been terminated according to the affidavit on file with the court. Rios is facing three felony charges of rape in the second degree, forcible sodomy, and rape by instrumentation. Rios is being held in the Logan County Detention Center. Rios is being held without bond and is scheduled for a court appearance on May 11 at 1:30 p.m.
The affidavit outlines the inmate’s allegations against Rios when the incident started on July 4, 2019, when Rios was the only detention officer on duty, and she was the only female in the pod. The inmate outlined several incidents over the course of her incarceration and indicated to the OSBI that Rios had video of some of the incidents. The affidavit also details how they pulled the jail video that allegedly shows visiting the female multiple times on July 4. There is also an allegation of cellphone video of the inmate in the shower.
The victim was released from jail in March 2020 and had moved to Tulsa, when she alleges Rios reached out to her on Facebook and Messenger. The OSBI was notified.
The investigation continued with an interview with a male trustee at the Kingfisher facility when he detailed to investigators how he allegedly observed Rios using his phone to record in the female pod. The victim was moved to the Logan County Detention Center after reporting the incident where she was allegedly confronted by a female detention officer who saw the pictures and told the victim she was Rios’s girlfriend and wanted to know what was going on.
The OSBI served a search warrant on the Rios residence on May 5 and seized several phones, laptops, and other computer items. Rios was arrested and charged on May 7 and booked into the Logan County Detention Center.
