LOGAN, Utah, Aug. 11, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A former contract employee who worked in the Cache County Jail has been charged on suspicion of having sexual contact with an inmate.
Teresa Pitcher, 54, has been charged on suspicion of custodial sexual relations, a third-degree felony, said a news release from Cache County Sheriff’s Office.
She was booked into the Cache County Jail on Friday morning.
“Mrs. Pitcher was employed by a contract food service company that provides food services to the jail,” the news release said. “She had been with the company for approximately three to four months.”
As part of their normal duties, deputies were monitoring phone calls in the jail and discovered “concerning conversations” between Pitcher and the inmate involved, the news release said.
Sheriff’s investigators say they’ve determined at least one tryst took place between Pitcher and an inmate. They also claim Pitcher brought contraband into the facility,” according to the news release.
Pitcher was released by the food service company and is no longer employed. Her case has been transferred to the County Attorney for charges.
The inmate involved is a state inmate who was being housed in the Cache County facility for the Department of Corrections; he has since been transferred back to the prison.
