Waco, Tx — A former jail officer for the Jack Harwell Detention Center in Waco has received five years deferred adjudication for pleading guilty to having an improper sexual relationship with an inmate.
Dorothy Pennington, 22, pleaded guilty to the charges in November. The inmate reportedly told officers he and Pennington had sexual encounters several times between 2011 and 2013.
With deferred adjudication, if Pennington completes all the requirements of her probation over the next five years, the conviction will not stay on her record.
