Former Blackburn Correctional Facility employee Jennifer Wiseman plead not guilty on Monday to having sex with an inmate.
The former corrections officer at Blackburn Correctional Facility in Lexington plead not guilty to charges of official misconduct and third degree rape.

Jennifer Wiseman, 37, is accused of having sexual relations with an inmate.

According to court documents, Wiseman began a sexual relationship with an inmate at Blackburn back in July.
Another inmate told jail officials that Wiseman would take the inmate, Jason Adams, into the women's bathroom, causing jail officials to open an internal investigation.

Court documents reveal that many of the phone conversations were sexually explicit.
Documents also said the two discussed the shift her husband worked. He is employed at the Fayette County Detention Center.

Wiseman declined to comment before her arraignment Monday.
