A former Johnson County Department of Corrections employee was sentenced Monday to six months in jail for lewd behavior and trafficking in contraband.
Alyssa Jo Staats, 25, was initially charged last year with having unlawful sexual relations with an adult offender in the department’s Therapeutic Community, an intensive drug treatment program.
But in December, she pleaded no contest and was found guilty of amended charges of trafficking contraband in a correctional facility, obstructing a law enforcement officer and lewd and lascivious behavior.
