Deenesha Lemandy Carter, 23, of Macon, Georgia, received probation from a judge after she had sexual relations with an inmate she was guarding, resulting in a pregnancy.
Carter pled guilty to breaking her oath as an officer when she had sex with Walter Lee Harris, 37, who was jailed in March 2010 for murder. She was also charged with sexual assault of a prisoner.
Prosecutors were more concerned with the very serious charge of sexual assault.
The Daily Mail reports:
As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors decided against proceeding with the more serious sexual assault charge.
According to WGXA, Carter will no longer be able to work in law enforcement.
Harris is currently serving a life sentence after he shot Quentin Walker five times.
Carter had the child of Harris, and the child is now in her care.
Harris is serving a life sentence after shooting another Georgia man.
