A corrections officer admitted to trying to seduce a teenage inmate on Wednesday.
Latersha Allen, 30, pleaded guilty to use of obscene matter to seduce a minor.
Allen was arrested last year after authorities say she sent sexually explicit letters to a 15-year-old inmate.
It happened at the James Tiger Morton Juvenile Detention Center in Dunbar.
Allen was working at the center as a corrections officer when the crimes were committed, investigators say.
Allen will be sentenced in February.
Prosecutors have recommended an alternative sentence, meaning no jail time, if she has a good pre-sentence report returned to the court.
She will remain out on bond until then.
