Fifty-eight year old Freda Stuart, a teacher at the Walnut Grove Correctional Facility, has been arrested and charged with "sex with an inmate."

She was arrested Thursday, accused of having sex with an inmate in a classroom closet. A deputy warden told police that Stuart and the inmate were having sex in the closet after a class had ended and the other inmates had returned to their units.

Stuart had bond set Friday morning, and Police Chief Kevin Polk believes she bonded out of jail.

Earlier this week, Walnut Grove Correctional Officer Romelowe Lofton was arrested for conspiring to bring in contraband. Nineteen-year-old Lofton and an inmate's girlfriend, Jatra Brooks, were both arrested after Brooks was caught bringing in a cell phone and cigarettes to another inmate. 

Brooks was bringing an inmate dinner, and Lofton allowed her into the facility.
