ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former state Children, Youth and Families Department psychotherapist has been indicted for allegedly having sex with a boy incarcerated at a juvenile detention center near Ruidoso.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1CdVRbn) the indictment of 36-year-old Julie Ann Barham came after the minor alerted staff at the Lincoln Pines Youth Center on Feb. 8.

The boy reported that Barham allegedly gave him prescription medication and would snort the drug with him prior to engaging in sex.

Barham was hired by CYFD last fall. She resigned the day after the minor reported the alleged incident.

Authorities say she is being held on suspicion of second-degree criminal sexual penetration, distribution of a controlled substance to a minor, bringing contraband into a juvenile correctional facility and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
