TYLER COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - The Texas Department of Criminal Justice's Office of the Inspector General arrested a 44-year-old TDCJ correctional officer last week in connection to allegations that she had sex with an inmate on several occasions in the period from September to November of 2015.
Victoria Hart Pryor, of Jasper, was arrested and charged with state-jail felony improper sexual activity with a person in custody.
According to the affidavit East Texas News obtained Wednesday, a OIG investigator's investigation revealed that Pryor had a sexual relationship with an inmate. When the deputy interviewed the inmate, the inmate told the deputy that he and Pryor were in a relationship for more than a year while he worked for her in the kitchen at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice's Gib Lewis Unit in Woodville.
Later, the OIG investigator interviewed Pryor, and she admitted to having a relationship with the inmate and having sex with him on several occasions in the fall of 2015.
