FLEMINGTON, N.J. (AP) - A corrections officer at New Jersey’s only prison for women is accused of having a sexual relationship with an inmate.

Hunterdon County prosecutors say Brian Ambroise is charged with sexual assault and official misconduct. The 32-year-old Union man also has been suspended from his post at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility in Clinton

Ambroise’s bail was set at $50,000 after he was arrested on Thursday. The charges were made public on Tuesday, and it wasn’t known if he has retained an attorney.

The arrest came after a joint investigation by the prosecutor’s office and the state Department of Corrections’ Special Investigations Division.

Authorities declined further comment on the charges or the ongoing investigation.
