Floyd County corrections officer admitted having sex with inmate

A  former Floyd County Corrections Officer admitted to having sex with an inmate and even going to his mother’s house to get pills for him, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in the Superior Court Wednesday.

Michelle A. Hurst, 39, of Borden, told detectives that she had sexual intercourse with an inmate, 31-year-old Craig Proctor, on at least two occasions in July. She also gave Proctor oral sex two other times, she told police.

From June 12 to June 23, Proctor made 40 calls to Hurst’s cell phone. In the phone calls which were taped, Hurst discussed how she was going to bring tobacco products and a cell phone delivered to him in his jail cell.

Hurst also said she went to Proctor’s mother’s house three times and had his mother give her pills to take to give Proctor, according to the affidavit. She brought him two loratabs and three other pills, she said.

On another occasion, she brought him Makers Mark and Wild Turkey whiskey and an MP3 player.

Hurst was employed by the Floyd County Sheriff’s Department from April 5 until July 21, 2008. Sheriff Darrell Mills said she was still on probationary status, and he was able to fire her immediately after hearing of allegations.

Detectives officially began investigating Aug. 4, according to the affidavit.

Mills said that he monitors his employees closely and does not tolerate anything unprofessional.

“This shows that the system is working,” Mills said.

Hurst was charged with sexual misconduct by a service provider and trafficking with an inmate, both class C felonies. She was also charged with trafficking with an inmate, as a class A misdemeanor.

A class C felony is punishable by two to eight years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.

Hurst’s next court appearance is scheduled for Monday. Bond was set at $50,000.
