LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A former Clark County corrections officer has admitted to having sex with a female inmate.

Dalton Warfield, 25, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual misconduct on Thursday. He could get a year's home incarceration, plus probation, for the crime. 

Warfield is set to be sentenced next month.

Sheriff's officers arrested Warfield in August after he admitted to the relationship. Warfield only worked at the jail for around four months before resigning and being arrested.

Court records say Warfield knew the woman before he started working at the jail.
