Brevard officials say jail employees had inappropriate relationships with inmates

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. —

One Brevard County Jail worker was fired and another quit after jail officials said the two were having inappropriate relationships with inmates.

Both of the women worked in the jail kitchen and one was training to be a corrections officer.

Investigators said one of those relationships even continued after the inmate was released.

"It's unfortunate and it's a troubling when there's a situation when our own personnel make bad decisions" said Commander Jimmy Donn, with the Brevard County Sheriff's Office.

Files show that the two women were accused of having relationships with convicted felons.

"In both instances the awareness provided through other employees notice to a supervisor," said Donn.

Chrystal Sapp was a corrections deputy in training. Sheriff's officials said she had a relationship with inmate Jonathan Bull and even visited him at an Orlando rehabilitation facility once he was released.

Investigators said conversations on Facebook provided evidence of the relationship and they said Sapp was terminated in June.

"No one has any questions about whether its permissible or not. We know that it is not," said Donn.

Investigators said they found evidence that food services manager Jena Clark was involved with inmate Christopher Seeloff.

According to jail officials, it is difficult to say exactly what happened at the jail because surveillance cameras are monitored, but not recorded.

Investigators said when investigators let Clark know what they had found she resigned, also in June.    

Investigators said cases of jail employees and inmates have inappropriate relationships are rare.
