A business woman is behind bars after she was caught having sex with an inmate.

Police spotted 53-year-old Teresa Jo Burchfield parked opposite the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center in Virginia.

Officers became suspicious of the vehicle and went to check it out. According to police, they found Burchfield having sex with a 23-year-old prison inmate.

Authorities have not named the inmate, but they said that he had been jailed on minimal charges and he was on trustee status, which means he was authorized to work outside jail.

He allegedly used that opportunity to have sex with the much older woman.

Police said that the inmate was allegedly found with items that was given to him by Burchfield as gifts. Those items include clothes, cigarettes and vitamin supplements.

The inmate confessed to detectives that the pair had been having sex for about a month, officials said.

According to her Linkedin profile, Burchfield is a mother of a teenage daughter, and works as an independent research consultant in the Washington D.C. area.

She said on Linkedin that she has done consulting work for the government, including the FBI and the CIA, and with several defense contractors.

Burchfield is the wife of well-known Republican attorney Bobby Burchfield, who was hired by the Trump organization as one of the ethics lawyers to keep his personal business and government affairs apart to avoid conflict of interests.

Burchfield was charged with a class 1 misdemeanor. Her bail was set at $5,000.
