Sgt. Heather Sinnett

Army Sgt. Heather Sinnett, a 27-year-old female prison worker in Indiana, is facing misconduct charges following an alleged sexual encounter with an inmate. Sinnett is also reportedly pregnant with the inmate’s baby.

Sinnett, 27, has been charged with sexual misconduct for her alleged relationship with Brad Gullege, who is an inmate at Edinburgh Correctional Facility.

Sinnett, an unmarried mother-of-two, would reportedly escort and supervise inmates as part of her duties at the prison. According to Edinburgh Correctional Facility officials, that is how she met Gullege.

Gullege, 37, told police that the two were getting ice in October 2016 when they had sex in a mop closet. Authorities also said Gullege and Sinnett talked about the sexual encounter while on a phone call, calling it ‘brief and hurried.’

The facility is a minimum security work release program in the middle of Camp Atterbury. Officials say Sinnett was assigned to escort inmates around the facility and supervise them.

Gullege told police that’s what she was doing when she escorted him to get ice last October. He said he and Sinnett ended up having a sexual encounter in the mop closet which resulted in Sinnett becoming pregnant.

“People place great trust in people who oversee and supervise IDOC inmates and anytime somebody betrays that trust or takes advantage of it for their own personal satisfaction…it is very serious,” said Deputy Prosecutor Hamner.

Sgt. Heather Sinnett, who informed the Army on December 12 that she was expecting, is now facing a felony charge sexual misconduct with an inmate. She faces up to six years if found guilty.
