Former Humboldt County Correctional Officer pleaded not guilty to child sexual abuse

EUREKA – A former Humboldt County Correctional Deputy pleaded not guilty to multiple charges involving sex crimes against children.
Cory Jordan Fisher, Sr. faces nine counts including aggravated sexual assault of a child, continuous sexual abuse, and forcible lewd acts upon a child.
All victims were under the age of fifteen and the alleged crimes spanned twelve years between 2005 and 2017.
30-year-old Fisher was taken in to custody in San Bernardino and extradited to Humboldt after a lengthy investigation by Eureka Police with assistance from the District Attorney and Sheriff’s Office.
Our cameras were not allowed in the courtroom for Friday’s arraignment. A booking photo is not available because he was arrested out of county.
The court-appointed public defender entered a not guilty plea on Fisher’s behalf.
Bail was set at $500,000. That’s down from the initial amount of $1 million but may be increased Tuesday when Fisher will appear in court again to determine if he will be released on his own recognizance.
UPDATE: Due to a mistake in the bail calculation, Fisher returned to the courtroom. Bail was increased to $3 million.
