NEW DETAILS: Airway Heights Correction Center Employee Resigns After Contact With Offender

Posted: Updated:

 

AIRWAY HEIGHTS, Wash- New details emerged Monday in alleged relationship between sex therapist and sex offender at Airway Heights Corrections Center.

Through a public records request KHQ obtained a copy of the 8 page police report which details an intense alleged sexual relationship between an inmate and a sex therapist who was an employee at the corrections center. She has since resigned. 

According to the report it says the inmate who is in prison for committing sex crimes began a relationship with his sex therapist. The report says the inmate was going to be "kicked out of treatment" but the therapist in question fought to keep him in the program and agreed to take him on as a client.
 
The report states that during the month of April, the inmate and the therapist had inappropriate sexual contact and that the inmate and the therapist had a "mutual attraction for each other."

Investigators say the therapist admitted she "met with" the inmate "more than any other offender one her case load so they could talk." After interviewing the therapist, investigators also discovered several sexually charged letters sent to the inmate in prison from the therapist.

Investigators say the therapist used a false name and return address so the letters would go un detected by prison staff. The report shows at least 8 letters written to the inmate.
 
The inmate is being treated as a victim in this case. Police have concluded their investigation and have recommended felony 1st degree sexual mis-conduct charges against the therapist.

KHQ is not releasing the names of the inmate or the therapist because no charges have yet been filed and no arrests have been made. The Spokane County Prosecutors will now determine if formal charges will be filed.
