PUTNAM COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A Terre Haute woman is accused of having inappropriate relationships with at least two prison inmates.
Officials say Marla Shappard worked at the Putnamville Correctional Facility as a contractual medical staff member.
During that time, Shappard admitted to having an inappropriate relationship with an inmate in the prison. She also reportedly admitted to talking with another inmate at a separate facility where she worked.
Putnamville Correctional Facility Warden Brian Smith said in a written statement: "We have a zero tolerance for this type of behavior and will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law."
Shappard turned herself in and has since posted bond. A court date is pending.
