NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested a former Macon County correctional officer on Tuesday for allegedly having sex with an inmate while she was employed by the jail.

42-year-old Wendy Deshay Carter was indicted on five counts of sexual contact with inmates and five counts of official misconduct.

Investigators said between January 2012 and March 2013, Carter began a sexual relationship with an inmate which lasted about a year.

Carter would reportedly disable surveillance cameras in the jail or find locations without a surveillance camera to engage in sexual activity with the inmate.

Officials said she also exchanged nude photos and arranged sexual encounters with the inmate after giving him a cell phone in the jail.

Carter was booked into the Macon County Jail on $2,500 bond.
