FARMERVILLE, La. (AP) - A Union Parish Detention Center sergeant has been arrested for having an intimate relationship with an inmate.

Sheriff Dusty Gates tells The News-Star (https://tnsne.ws/1xWauEm ) that 24-year-old Sgt. Michelle Traylor, of Dubach, faces two counts of introduction of contraband into a prison facility; three counts of malfeasance in office involving sexual activity and malfeasance in office involving improper communication and accepting money for providing favors to an inmate.

Gates says Traylor was arrested Wednesday. Bond had not been set as of Thursday. It was unknown if Traylor had an attorney.

Gates says that Traylor admitted to providing a cell phone and synthetic marijuana to the inmate. Detectives also learned that Traylor had sexual contact with the unidentified inmate on several occasions.

Investigators said the relationship between the two started in September.
