FIRST ON KHQ: Sex Therapist Charged For Sexual Relationship With Sex Offender Inside Airway Heights Corrections Center

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - KHQ's Alex Rozier has learned that the Spokane County Prosecutor's Office has officially filed charges against former Airway Heights Corrections Center Sex Therapist Sarah Brooks, for having sexual intercourse with a sex offender inside the prison. The prosecutor's office filed charges for three counts of custodial sexual misconduct in the first degree.

According to the police report a staff member found Brooks "in a state of undress" in a room with the sex offender. Once investigators got a chance to talk with her they asked her why they were there. She said, "I was witnessed by another officer being inappropriate, my shirt was up and my bra was showing." The investigator then asked her to again confirm that her shirt was up, and Brooks stated, "He asked me to, there was no sexual conduct."

 According to the police report, in her first interview Brooks was adamant that their relationship had just started and that there had been nothing sexual before she was caught. She called it "all conversational." But later she admitted that she and Wright had a mutual attraction for each other.

After acknowledging their mutual attraction Brooks continued to spill more information saying that they had both said they loved each other and that she had written letters to the inmate under a different name containing explicit sexual content. Brooks said she made up the name so that she would not get caught when the mail came into the prison.

Brooks also said during investigators interviews that she was married and that her husband works at the Airway Heights Corrections Center as well. As we now know, Brooks is no longer an employee.
