MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A man who worked closely with prosecutors to help put criminals away in Montgomery County has pleaded guilty in a sexual harassment case.

James Thomas Hunt, a former investigator with the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office, was sentenced to two years of supervised probation on August 31, state officials said.

In May, Hunt was indicted by a grand jury on two counts of sexual abuse and two counts of harassment.  

According to court documents, he was accused of intentionally subjecting the victims to sexual contact “while they were incapable of consent by reason of some factor other than being less than 16-years-old.” The documents also indicate Hunt harassed, annoyed, or alarmed the victims by striking, kicking or otherwise subjected them to physical contact.

The alleged crimes happened when Hunt worked at the District Attorney’s Office. He has not worked there since the complaints were filed in 2015.

The Alabama Attorney General's Office investigated and prosecuted the case.  

District Attorney Daryl Bailey recused his office from handling it because of Hunt’s former employment.

When asked about the outcome of the case this week in court, a spokeswoman for the Alabama Attorney General’s Office stated that Hunt was terminated based on sexual harassment claims made by office personnel and one other woman.

On Wednesday, he pleaded guilty to two counts of harassment, which is a class C misdemeanor.

He was sentenced to 90 days concurrently for each count, which was suspended, and he is to serve two years of supervised probation and surrender his Alabama Peace Officers Standards and Training certification as a law enforcement officer, the Attorney General’s Office said.

No other details were released.
