YORK, Neb. (AP) - A 46-year-old man has been accused of having a sexual relationship with an inmate at the Nebraska women’s prison in York.

Authorities say Michael Weichman, of Bradshaw, was a staff maintenance employee who resigned Monday. Investigators say another inmate tipped prison officials that Weichman and the other inmate were having sex.

A court document says Weichman denied the allegation. He described his relationship with the 38-year-old inmate as playful but not sexual.

She’d been assigned to do maintenance work while serving time for child abuse resulting in death.

Under Nebraska law, any prison or jail worker who has sex with an inmate has committed sexual assault.

Weichman was arrested earlier this week. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney.
