Police in Florida, were tipped off to the illicit relationship by other inmates.

Megan Lynch, 27, resigned from her job as a former Volusia County corrections officer after her relationship was uncovered.

She was charged with sexual misconduct and voyeurism. Investigators said that among other things, Lynch watched the nude inmate taking showers when she worked at the jail.

Lynch used other inmates to hand notes to her lover and to act as lookouts to make sure that her coworkers don’t catch her while she was having sex with the inmate.

The sexual encounters took place in her office, police said. According to court documents, Lynch called the inmate 450 times in a three month period.

She also visited the inmate on her days off. Prisoners told police that Lynch kissed the inmate through locked cell doors.

Lynch was arrested and she was later released from the Flagler County Jail after posting $10,000 bond.
