A female employee of CiviGenics who works as a guard in the Liberty County Jail resigned Tuesday, April 29, after being questioned by Liberty County Sheriff’s Office investigators about having sex with an inmate, according to Liberty County Sheriff Greg Arthur.

The case has been accepted by the Liberty County District Attorney’s Office and will be presented to a grand jury.

The grand jury could return an indictment for Violation of Civil Rights of a Person in Custody By Having Sex With That Person.

This is a State Jail Felony, punishable by confinement for a period of 180 days to two years in a state jail and a fine not to exceed $10,000.

Earlier this year, two guards at the facility were arrested for delivering marijuana, esctasy, and cash into the jail.

CiviGenics guards have been indicted on sexual assault charges at other Texas jails as well, including civil rights charges at the company’s bi-state jail in Texarkansas and similar charges at the McLennon County jail in Waco.
