A former guard at a Nebraska prison center for work release in Lincoln has been given probation for having a sexual relationship with a woman who became his girlfriend after she was parole.
Online court records say 28-year-old Anoroy Loyuk was given 18 months of probation at his sentencing on Monday. State law bars corrections employees from having sex with inmates or parolees, even if both parties agree.
Loyuk and the woman met while Loyuk was working at the Community Corrections Center in Lincoln. Loyuk's lawyer says the relationship didn't begin until more than a month after the woman was paroled and under the supervision of a parole officer. Loyuk and the woman saw each other at a grocery store and exchanged greetings. Then they exchanged addresses.
