GRACEVILLE, Fla. (WTXL) - A food service supervisor at a local correctional facility has been arrested, accused of having sex with an inmate and lying about it. 

Former Graceville Correctional Facility food service employee Madison Carter has been charged with sexual misconduct and perjury.

According to an arrest affidavit, the cook supervisor allegedly had sex with an inmate on April 15, around 3 a.m.

Witnesses told investigators that Carter and the inmate went into the staff dining restroom to have intercourse. Surveillance video showed the inmate entering the restroom, followed minutes later by Carter.

Investigators note that Carter and the inmate were alone in the area for almost 12 minutes before someone knocked on the door and Carter came out of the restroom. One witness said the inmate was mopping inside the staff dining area when Carter came out, however, the witness didn't see the inmate there before knocking on the restroom door. 

Documents say the inmate later admitted to the act, saying that Carter suggested it. 

During her interview, Carter denied having sex with the inmate, alleging that the inmate was inside the staff dining room mopping while she used the restroom. She claimed that DNA from the inmate wouldn't be found on her body nor would hers be found on him.

The next day, investigators collected DNA from Carter and the inmate. They note Carter's husband voluntarily submitted to a DNA collection as well. The samples were sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for analysis.

Documents say the FDLE report indicated Carter had a mixture of DNA from both the inmate and her husband on her. Her DNA was also found underneath the inmate's fingernails. 

Based on the investigation, Carter was charged with sexual misconduct and perjury on August 15. Following her arrest, Carter was transported to the Jackson County Jail.
