OLDHAM COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Roederer Correction Complex employee is being charged with sodomy in the third degree.

Kentucky State Police reports that KSP Post 5 in Campbellsburg received a call around 3 p.m. on Friday of an employee "engaging in illegal sexual conduct with an inmate."

After this call, KSP says they investigated the allegations. The preliminary investigations found that an on-duty corrections officer "observed a contract food services employee with the inmate."

That employee has been identified as 21-year-old Duncan Thornton from Lagrange. Police also say both parties admitted to engaging in illegal sexual activity.

Thornton was arrested and charged with Sodomy 3rd Degree. He was transported to Oldham County Detention Center.
