A correctional case manager at the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City was arrested Tuesday on a charge of sexual misconduct, the Department of Correction (DOC) is reporting. According to a statement released today by DOC, Heather Fox was charged with sexual misconduct after an investigation determined that she had a sexual relationship with an inmate at the Indiana State Prison.

“After an interview and written statement, she was suspended pending termination and placed under arrest for violation of sexual misconduct,” DOC said.

Fox was transported to the LaPorte County Jail.

Sexual misconduct is a Level 5 felony punishable by a term of one to six years.

The offender reportedly involved has been transferred to another facility in the DOC.

“The Indiana Department of Correction is committed to zero tolerance for all forms of sexual activity and we will continue to refer case for prosecution,” Warden Ron Neal said. “Sexual activity by staff, volunteers, contractual staff, visitors, official visitors, and offenders with offenders, regardless of whether consensual or not, is strictly prohibited.”
