CHICAGO (AP) - A Cook County Jail correctional officer has been charged with custodial sexual misconduct for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with an inmate.

The Cook County Sheriff’s Department announced Thursday that 47-year-old Lotisha Myers was arrested late Wednesday at the jail. Authorities say the woman’s alleged sexual misconduct with an inmate in Division II, which houses minimum and medium security male detainees, was uncovered last week.

Court records identify the inmate as a 29-year-old man who is being held without bail on drug charges.

The sheriff’s department says Myers, who resigned after her arrest, had been with the agency since 2003.

Defense attorney Robert Habib called Myers’ actions unfortunate and “a stupid mistake.”
