AIRWAY HEIGHTS, Wash. —

A female therapist who specialized in sexual deviancy treatment at the Airway Heights Corrections Center has resigned after having an inappropriate relationship with a male sex offender.

The employee was a therapist in the Sex Offender Treatment Program and voluntarily resigned April 11.

Corrections spokeswoman Risa Klemme says employee guidelines do not allow relationships between offenders and staff.

The Spokesman-Review reports the Airway Heights Police Department is investigating the incident for possible criminal charges.

Officials say the employee could face a charge of first-degree custodial sexual misconduct. Washington law describes that charge as a perpetrator employed by a correctional agency having sexual intercourse with a resident of a prison.
