The Washington State Department of Transportation may review employment policies and hiring practices after a ferry worker was accused of photographing girls on the Tillicum ferry.
KING-TV reports the worker died over the weekend while in federal custody.
The 50-year-old Port Orchard man had pleaded guilty to possessing child porn in 2009. He was back in custody after deputies received a report he was taking photos of girls in early July, which was a violation of his parole.
The transportation department has rules and policies about disclosing arrests and court action if they concern something that happened on ferry property or could affect a worker’s assigned duties.
