Female corrections officer accused of having sex with inmate

A corrections officer at an Idaho prison had sex with a inmate — and gave him raunchy photographs to remember her by, authorities said.

Miranda Ackerman, 29, is facing charges of having sexual contact with an adult inmate and unlawfully introducing contraband into the Idaho Maximum Security Institution, where she worked until her resignation in early April, the Idaho Press reports.

Ackerman, of Nampa, is suspected of getting hot and heavy with the inmate over a one-month span starting on Feb. 9 in an area of the prison where inmates generally get haircuts, Ada County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Patrick Orr told the newspaper.

Ackerman, who went by the name Miranda Jefferds during her time at the lockup, is also accused of giving the inmate graphic photographs, leading to the contraband charge, police and prosecutors said.

The alleged sexual activity took place on more than one occasion, KBOI reports.

An investigation was launched in late April after the Idaho Department of Correction contacted Ada County sheriff officials, the Idaho Press reports.

Ackerman, who surrendered to authorities late Friday after a judge issued a warrant for her arrest, had been scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, according to the newspaper.

Ackerman was no longer listed in custody at the Ada County Jail as of early Wednesday, online records show.
