A Former Wabash Valley Correctional Facility officer is facing charges of trafficking with an inmate.
30 year old Adrien Higgins has admitted to being involved in an inappropriate relationship with 26 year old Timothy Lear who is an inmate.
She also told investigators she smuggled in tobacco to Lear in early August for $50.
The tobacco allegedly led to an altercation between Lear and other inmates who wanted to be included into his tobacco trafficking operation with Higgins.
Higgins was fired from her correctional officer position August 6 and has been arrested and posted bond.
Lear is serving a 60 year sentence for murder out of Posey County.
He has already been transferred to another state facility.
