TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- A former Topeka correctional facility officer must pay $750,000 to an inmate with whom he had sex with.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Rogers ordered Nathan Van Dyke to pay the judgment when he didn't respond to a lawsuit filed by former inmate Rebecca Fleetwood.

Under a plea agreement in 2010, Van Dyke was found guilty on two counts of improper sexual conduct with female prison inmates.
He received probation.

The judge's order also releases supervisors at the prison and Kansas Department Of Correction officials from the lawsuit because the state paid a $30,000 settlement to Fleetwood.
