(Scroll down for video) A corrections officer lost his job after he was caught having a relationship with an underage boy.
Tyler Fox, 28, had just started working as a corrections officer in Utah, when he was caught having the illicit relationship with the 15-year-old boy.
Kane County Sheriff Deputy Lamont Smith said that the teen’s father found inappropriate text messages that Fox sent to his son.
The father then posed as his son and asked Fox if “wanted to hook up again,” to which he replied: “I don’t know. I was feeling really guilty about it afterward. Let’s at least wait a bit.”
After a disturbing conversation between the two, the father called police.
Fox admitted to having a sexual relationship with the teenager. He also admitted to sending nude pictures of himself to two other minors.
Fox was arrested and charged with four counts of sexual abuse of a minor and unlawful sexual conduct with a 16 or 17 year old.
Fox was booked into the Kane County Jail, and then moved to the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility, away from where he works so that the victims can get justice.
Fox was released after posting almost $47,000 bail.
