A corrections officer in Ohio was tossed on the other side of the bars after she admitted having sex with at least one inmate, authorities said.
Nakisha Newell, 28, was immediately fired after detectives in Butler County got a tip that the corrections officer — who had been on the job just 18 months — was bringing contraband into the county jail, including a cellphone and electronic cigarettes, Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones announced Monday.
“This is unacceptable,” Jones posted on Twitter. “She was terminated immediately.”
Investigators later learned that Newell also engaged in sexual activity with at least one inmate, Jones said.
“Being a corrections officer is a noble but tough job,” Jones said. “These men and women work hard and always have to be on their guard. My employees take pride in their work and strive to ensure this facility maintains a great reputation. She has tarnished that and I do not want people like that working for me.”
