KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A former case manager will spend six
months under house arrest for lying when being questioned about
having sex with an inmate at the Leavenworth federal prison.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says 36-year-old Jennifer Stambaugh
of Overland Park was also sentenced Monday to six months probation
and a $3,000 fine. She pleaded guilty in April to making a false
statement to a Justice Department investigator.
In her plea, Stambaugh admitted she lied in 2006 when she told
the investigator that she did not have sex with an inmate while she
was working for the federal Bureau of Prisons. She also lied when
she denied having contact with the inmate after he was released in
Bureau of Prisons employees are prohibited from having sexual
contact with inmates and from communicating with former inmates.
