DEL RIO, Texas (AP) - A former supervisor at a privately managed prison has been sentenced to just over a year in federal prison for having sex with a federal inmate at the prison.

A federal judge sentenced 59-year-old Leticia Martinez Garza in Del Rio on Thursday to 13 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release.

Court documents show Garza was the supervisor of laundry, property and supply at GEO Group’s Val Verde Correctional Facility when she had sex with a federal prisoner under her custody between May and September of 2014.

Garza could have been sentenced to up to 15 years in federal prison and fined up to $250,000.
