Former Guard Charged for Alleged Sexual Contact with Inmate

Associated Press - May 18, 2016 12:00 pm

A former officer at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility has been charged with having sexual contact with an inmate in the prison’s medium-security unit.

The Hutchinson News reports that Amy D. Hapner, is charged in Reno County with unlawful sexual relations. She remains free on $2,500 bond. It wasn’t immediately known if she has an attorney.

She is accused of engaging in consensual fondling May 7 with an inmate who is serving 25 years on two counts of first-degree murder.

Prison records show the inmate has been transferred to a higher-security unit at the prison.

Prison spokesman Jordan Bell says Hapner resigned May 9.
