Sleeping With an Inmate Is Against the Law
According to Montana state law, an inmate cannot give consent for sex with a supervisor at a correctional facility. Brittany Popovich who has supervisory responsibilities at the Butte Pre-release Center has been given a deferred sentence for having sex with an inmate in late 2016.
The inmate apparently tried to blackmail Popovich unless she did what he wanted. The inmate allegedly tested positive for meth and said he would divulge their relationship to her supervisors if she couldn't find a way to cover up the fact that he had tested positive.
