A former Laurens County detention officer has now been charged with sexual misconduct with an inmate.

38 year old Stephanie Nelson was charged following an investigation by the Laurens County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies say they reviewed security camera footage to monitor inmate-staff behavior, and saw what they say were "concerning" patterns of movement regarding Nelson and the inmate.

Nelson was terminated from employment immediately and booked into the Laurens County Detention Center.
