A former Hall County corrections officer is the subject of a criminal investigation by the Nebraska State Patrol, accused of having sexual contact with an inmate.

The female guard, who began working at the Grand Island jail last June, was fired Monday. She had been on administrative leave prior to that.

Federal and state laws bar police officers or jail guards from having sex with anyone under arrest or in custody. Nebraska's law says consent cannot be used as a defense.
