Speaking of sex

Posted By on Fri, Aug 14, 2009 at 12:22 PM

The Correction Department issued a news release today about a prison guard, Danita Williams, who was terminated recently for "trafficking and trading with inmates."

She was, the news release said, NOT "terminated for having an improper relationship with a Varner Supermax inmate." The story of the allegations has gotten wide circulation on the web.

Dina Tyler's release said the department had received an anonymous letter in May saying Williams was involved in a sexual relationship with an imate and that they'd exchanged "love letters." Tyler said an internal affairs investigation, including review of security camera video, found no evidence to support the allegation of an inappropriate relationship.

Tyler said further that officers work in pairs in Supermax and no officer is ever supposed to be alone with an inmate there.

"Williams did admit to exchanging crackers and soup packets between a Death Row inmate and a Supermax inmate," Tyler's release said. "As a result, her employment with the Arkansas Department of Correction was terminated."
