GUTHRIE, Okla. — A corporal at the Logan County Detention Center is fired after a jailhouse scandal.
Shealane Fields is accused of committing several felonies for Daniel Clark; an inmate she developed a relationship with.
According to court documents, someone noticed Clark smoking in his cell. Fingers pointed back to Fields who allegedly smuggled in tobacco, a lighter, a flat blade screw driver, crazy glue and cell phone.
Investigators also found 49 love letters. Some of the letters Fields passed to Clark during breakfast.
In one of those passionate notes they apparently talked about fabricating a medical event so Clark would be taken to the the medical cell where they could have sex.
In another letter the companions talked about a plan for Clark to walk out of jail; a real possibility since Fields was in charge of schedules for staff and controlled the locks.
“It’s always a tough thing when law enforcement finds one of his own breaking the rules; breaking the law and jeopardizing the security of the operation and so we deal with that quickly and harshly,” said Chief Deputy Rich Stephens with Logan County Sheriff’s Office.
Witnesses say the couple also sent nude cell phone pictures of each other. After all the risk the jailer took for the inmate, turns out he had a fiancé he actually talked to on the phone Fields bought for him.
Facing several felony charges, she will likely never work in law enforcement again. The newly appointed chief deputy says the office is reviewing security policies and making changes.
