Former Clark County Corrections officer answers to charges of having sex with an inmate

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- For the first time, a former Clark County Corrections officer is answering to charges of having sex with an inmate.

He’s no stranger to jail, but last night he found himself behind bars, accused of abusing his power as a corrections officer. Today, Dalton Warfield faced a judge.

Officials say the 24-year-old officer had sex with an inmate in jail. We’re told that woman was in jail on a probation violation. Officials say the two may have previously known each other. Warfield only worked at the jail for around four months before resigning and being arrested.

Even though the sheriff’s office says Warfield confessed, a not-guilty plea was entered on his behalf this morning in Clark County court. We asked him to share his side of the store after court, but he had no comment.

Warfield was released on his own recognizance. He’s expected back in court in mid-September.
