Former Correction Officer Pleads Guilty To Having Sex With Inmate

Last updated on Wednesday, August 10, 2016

(INDIANAPOLIS) - A former corrections officer at the Indiana Women’s Prison has pleaded guilty to having sex with an inmate.

The Indianapolis Star reports that 55-year-old Lamont Williams of Indianapolis entered the plea August 2 to a felony count of sexual misconduct. In return, prosecutors dismissed another count of sexual misconduct and one count of official misconduct.

Court documents say a female inmate told investigators Williams had sexual contact with her twice in 2014 and 2015 while he was a guard at the prison in Indianapolis. The Indiana Department of Correction fired Williams on February 1.

Under the plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend no more than two years in prison. Williams is scheduled to be sentenced on September 20.
