After Aikin's arrest, Louisville Metro Department of Corrections Director Mark Bolton, released the following statement:
"All Metro Corrections employees receive multi-layer training to avoid inmate sexual encounters. Metro Corrections has placed great emphasis in training to make sure that everyone here knows that no sexual encounter with an inmate is consensual. Any employee choosing to violate such standards will be exposed, investigated, fired and face criminal charges."
