A former jailer in East Texas is facing charges after she allegedly had sex with an inmate.

Harrison Co. authorities say Jessica Stringfellow, 24, admitted to the act during an interview.

Stringfellow was booked into the Gregg Co. Jail and charged with a single felony charge of "Sexual contact/intercourse with a person in custody" and "Prohibited substances and items in a correctional facility".

Stringfellow's bond has been set at $15,000 and investigators say further charges may be filed in this case.
