HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - A former officer at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility has been charged with having sexual contact with an inmate in the prison’s medium-security unit.

The Hutchinson News (https://bit.ly/1rTTm0C ) reports that Amy D. Hapner, is charged in Reno County with unlawful sexual relations. She remains free on $2,500 bond. It wasn’t immediately known if she has an attorney.

She is accused of engaging in consensual fondling May 7 with an inmate who is serving 25 years on two counts of first-degree murder. Prison records show the inmate has been transferred to a higher-security unit at the prison.

Prison spokesman Jordan Bell says Hapner resigned May 9.
