LAKE CITY, Fla. (WCJB) -- A Lake City Police Sergeant is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with an informant.

Jon Russell Jenkins had been working with Columbia County task force investigating drug trafficking.

An offense report indicates Jenkins was the task force's point of contact with the informant, who had agreed to provide information rather than being prosecuted on a drug charge.

Investigators say she told them she felt she had to have sex with Jenkins or go to jail.

In the report, Jenkins says he was set up.
