NewsChannel 11 is learning more about the former Children's Protective Services worker indicted Tuesday for sexual assault.

William Stewart, 36, is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting a thirty year-old woman. Investigators found the anesthetic Ketamine in her system.

On Wednesday, NewsChannel 11 learned that Stewart was hired by CPS back in February 2007. He had passed background check, and completed a six month training period to become an investigator.

"He was under close supervision and had just started working as an investigator when this happened," said Greg Gunningham, of the Department of Family and Protective Services.

Upon learning of the allegations, CPS put Stewart on a two week paid administrative leave, and then terminated his employment on July 25.
