Ga. Deputies Gone After Sex Talk with Inmate
August 14, 2012
One Oconee County (Ga.) Sheriff's jail deputy was fired and another resigned following an internal investigation that the pair had "inappropriate communications" with a female inmate, Oconee County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Lee Weems said Monday.
The deputies, Dewayne Powers and Andrea Rogers—both men were hired in 2010—sent Facebook friend requests to the 23-year-old inmate while she was incarcerated in the jail, Weems said. Powers also sent a text message to the inmate's phone, he said. Additionally, both deputies engaged in face-to-face conversations of a sexual nature with the inmate, according to Weems.

This inmate probably coaxed the deputies into doing this.

Coaxed? Probably. So what? These guys should've known better anyway. Two axioms apply here: Stupid is as stupid does; and you can't fix stupid. So goodbye, good riddance, enjoy another line of work.

Professional distance is always a good rule, even if she did encourage the behavior in some way, they are grown men responsible for their decisions and actions.
