WEST FELICIANA, La. (WAFB) - A woman was arrested by West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s deputies for an alleged sex crime involving a juvenile.

Murray’s bond was set at $50,000. She bonded out soon after her arrest.

West Feliciana Parish Sheriff Brian Spillman said the alleged incident took place on the grounds of the Louisiana State Penitentiary. Murray, who is not an employee of the Department of Corrections, lives in a house at the prison because her husband is employed there.

A spokesperson for the Louisiana Department of Corrections said Murray was immediately banned from the prison property following Friday’s arrest.

According to the spokesperson, Murray was previously employed as an EMT with the Louisiana State Penitentiary. But she resigned twice, once in 2017 after admitting to taking prescription narcotics from the prison’s treatment center, and a second time in 2018 after she was charged for malfeasance in office.
