2 state workers fired for sex with inmate
FRANKFORT, Ky. — Two female state workers have been fired after admitting to investigators that they had sex with a male prison inmate who was performing janitorial work at the Department of Housing, Buildings and Construction.
The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/KJ3ag0) reported on the investigation after obtaining documents through an Open Records Act request.
Scarlett Perry and Dawna King were fired earlier this month.
A third employee, Benjamin Lawyer, was suspended for five days for failing to properly supervise the inmate and allowing him access to pornographic material that he viewed at work.
The reports also noted allegations that moonshine was repeatedly brought to the department and that department workers improperly sold copper fittings that plumbers used when taking exams.
The inspector general's office did not substantiate the moonshine allegations.
