(KMOV.com) -- A female corrections officer was charged this week for allegedly having sex with an inmate at the St. Louis County Jail.
Authorities began to look into the relationship of the corrections officer, 24-year-old Elizabeth Hanson, and an inmate when graphic letters and phone calls between the two were brought to their attention in July.
Clayton police officers said that Hanson admitted to the sexual relationship when they questioned her.
Hanson, who became a corrections officer in April, left the position in September. County officials cannot confirm whether Hanson was fired, or if she resigned, because it is a personnel issue.
