LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A former Angelina County jailer who resigned after it was discovered she had a relationship with an inmate was in court Friday morning to sign some paperwork.

Kelly Whitehead Wilson, 40, was arrested in April on a charge of violation of civil rights of a person in custody after a Texas Ranger investigation revealed she had a relationship with an inmate.

Since the arrest, Wilson signed a waiver to her right to an indictment on April 29 and pleaded guilty the same day, accepting a five-year probation sentence.

When Wilson signed the paperwork, she signed it for a second-degree felony instead of a state-jail felony. Wilson had to come back to court Friday to sign the correct paperwork.
