(Scroll down for video) A lawyer was arrested on a charge of battery after allegedly having sex with two women in jail, according to police in Florida.

Jacksonville police said that they have arrested 45-year-old Anthony Blackburn, after he was caught having sex with a female inmate in a dark room in prison.

In court, Blackburn pleaded not guilty to one count of battery.

He was booked into jail, and his bail was set at $153.

According to the criminal complaint, on Saturday, Blackburn visited two of his female clients in the Duval County jail, and spent time with them at the same time in a conference room.

He then showed them pornographic images on his computer.

He then had inappropriate sexual contact with the women. The women are 28 and 34 years old.

The criminal behavior came to light after a corrections officer noticed Blackburn in the conference room with one of the women in the dark.

One woman said that she felt compelled to take part in the sexual activity because she felt that this would help her get a reduced prison sentence.
