CHICAGO — A Cook County correctional officer and two inmates are accused of watching pornography in jail.

The Cook County Sheriff’s Office says officer Oscar Taylor brought prohibited electronic devices into the jail barbershop, where he was supposed to be monitoring inmates getting haircuts.

Authorities say he watched porn on his cell phone with two of the detainees.

Taylor, 53, has been charged with bringing contraband into a penal institution. He was also charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon for allegedly carrying an uncased revolver near ammunition.

Taylor resigned after his arrest. He had worked for the sheriff’s office for 22 years.

The two inmates, William Taylor, 27, and Tyrone Noel, 39, are charged with possession of contraband. The sheriff’s office says Oscar Taylor and William Taylor are not related.
