Victoria Hart Pryor, 46, of Jasper, a former correctional officer for Texas Department of Criminal Justice was booked into the Tyler County jail this week to begin serving a six-month sentence for violating the civil rights of a person in custody by sexual contact.
Pryor was first charged in August 2016 for incidents that occurred at the Gib Lewis Unit in Woodville between September and November 2015, following an investigation by TDCJ's Office of the Inspector General.
When an investigator interviewed the inmate, he said that he and Pryor worked together in the kitchen and had a relationship that lasted more than a year.
Pryor later admitted to having sex with the inmate on several occasions in the fall of 2015.
Pryor has been assigned to the Plane State Jail unit in Liberty County.
