LEBANON, OHIO – A former food service worker at a southwest Ohio jail has been sentenced to 30 days after authorities say she and an inmate engaged in sexual activities in a walk-in food cooler.
The Warren County prosecutor’s office said Wednesday that 25-year-old Samantha Shannon of Lebanon also was sentenced to three years of community control on the sexual battery conviction and must register as a sex offender. If she violates terms of the community control, she faces up to two years in prison.
Authorities say Shannon was employed by a company that provides inmate meals at the Warren County jail. Investigators say she was a kitchen supervisor in November when she engaged in sexual activities with an inmate under her supervision.
A message seeking comment was left for her attorney after business hours Wednesday.
