Deenesha Lemandy Carter, a 23-year-old female corrections officer from Georgia, received probation after she admitted having sex with convicted murderer Walter Lee Harris, 37, and giving birth to his baby.
Carter, of Macon, Georgia, admitted on count of violating her oath as a public officer in a plea agreement with prosecutors. She revealed that she engaged in a sexual relationship with Harris, who was jailed in March 2010 for murder.
Carter became pregnant as a result of the affair and subsequently gave birth to Harris’ child.
According to court records, Carter was indicted on May 2 on two counts, violation of oath by a public officer and sexual assault of an inmate at a correctional facility. Prosecutors decided against proceeding with the more serious sexual assault charge as part of her plea agreement.
Carter will no longer be able to work in law enforcement, WGXA reports.
Harris is currently serving a life sentence after he shot Quentin Walker five times.
