Female Sentenced for Having Sex with Juvenile Detainees
FAIRFIELD, Ohio (WKRC) -- A woman is sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and one count of sexual battery.
Amber M. Harris left her job at the Butler County Juvenile Rehabilitation Center in July of 2011. There were no allegations of sexual encounters with detainees at the time. In June, 2013 administrators reported possible criminal sexual encounters between her and some of the juvenile detainees.
Three male victims, two age 15 and one age 16, were being held at the rehab center when the incidents occurred in 2011.
Harris was also employed part-time in 2011 with St. Aloysius Cambridge School in Hamilton where additional victims were identified.
After she completes her 90 day sentence Harris will be required to complete a Substance Abuse Mentally Ill program and then be subjected to five years probation. Harris will have to register as a Tier 3 sex offender for the rest of her life.
