COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- A former South Carolina prison guard has
been charged with having sex with an inmate.

The State Law Enforcement Division said Thursday that
27-year-old Jesse Reid of Hephzibah, Ga., was arrested Wednesday
and charged with sexual misconduct with an inmate.

SLED says Reid admitted in August to having a sexual
relationship with an inmate at McCormick Correctional Institution,
a maximum security all-male facility about 80 miles west of

A spokesman for the prison system said Reid was hired as a guard
in December 2006 and was fired in October because of inappropriate
relations with an inmate.

It was not immediately clear if bond had been set for Reid or if
he had an attorney. Jail officials said they were not authorized to
release that information.
