A Justice Center prison guard is facing multiple charges of sexual contact with an inmate at the maximum security jail last year.
St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce filed eleven felony counts against Stephanie Rodgers Monday. The acts are alleged to have occurred in the prisoner’s cell and a security tower.
Assistant Circuit Attorney Dan Proost said officials learned of the affair through phone taps that were part of a separate investigation.
