This was bound to happen, ‘Inappropriate’ act.

A male employee at the T. Don Hutto Residential Detention Center was fired Sunday after management received information alleging an inappropriate relationship between the employee and an adult female detainee at the facility.


The sheriff’s office investigated the report of officer misconduct at Hutto, and they concluded that the misconduct did not fall under local or state statutes, said Detective John Foster, spokesman for the sheriff’s office. They are in the process of turning over their findings to the federal government.

The employee was not identified by CCA or the authorities investigating the incident, and CCA offered no further comment “out of respect for that ongoing investigation,” according to a press statement.

Federal law criminalizes any sexual conduct, regardless of coercion, between staff and inmates in detention, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

The ICE Office of Professional Responsibility is also reviewing the incident, according to a statement by ICE spokeswoman Nina Pruneda.

The investigation is the latest controversy surrounding the Taylor facility.

Don’t forget to thank members of the County Commission for renewing the contract so this could take place in our county. Also don’t forget what John Carter said, “..he has been assured the center is ‘running in an appropriate and humane manner.’“. More than likely this wasn’t the first time, just the first time we’ve found out about it. It’s no wonder why the didn’t want to let the UN Inspector inside.
