LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas defense attorney is accused of a sex act with a female client during a visit at the Clark County jail.

Authorities say 58-year-old Curtis Cannon and his 23-year-old client Crystal Wallis were arrested on suspicion of voluntary sexual conduct between a prisoner and another person.

An arrest report says police started investigating after hearing reports of Cannon’s alleged misconduct with inmates.

They set up a hidden camera with the audio disabled during a Thursday visit between Cannon and Wallis. Police say footage appears to show Wallis performing oral sex on Cannon.

Detectives met up with Cannon Monday at the Regional Justice Center, where they interviewed and arrested him.

Cannon was not listed as an inmate Wednesday morning. A message left at his office was not immediately returned.
