Former officer arrested

As the result of an investigation launched by the Idaho Department of Correction's Office of Professional Standards and turned over to the Ada County Sheriff's Office, a former IDOC correctional officer was arrested Thursday for allegedly having sexual contact with an inmate.

Pamela L. Thompson was hired by IDOC on March 25, 2013. She worked at Idaho Maximum Security Institution south of Boise. Her employment was terminated on September 6, 2013.

The charge of sexual contact with a prisoner is a felony. IDOC refers all felony criminal investigations to the local law enforcement agency which has jurisdiction over the area where the crime allegedly occurred.

Because this is a personnel matter, IDOC will have no further comment.
