 Omaha, NE - Sex inside the Douglas county jail, Action 3 News has learned two corrections officers are off the job.

Director Mark Foxall of the Douglas County jail says he identified misconduct and began an internal investigation where he found potential criminal acts.
According to a source, about a month ago, an officer at the jail had an alleged sexual encounter with an inmate while she was on a federal hold. The officer was overseeing the inmate during her duties when the alleged encounter happened. 
According to our source, another inmate allegedly witnessed sexual act.  That's when a second officer told her something along the lines of "it's none of your business".
The sheriffs office is investigating, Foxall says the jail is cooperating and the suspected staff members are no longer working at the Douglas county jail.  Our source says they were fired, Foxall wouldn't confirm that.
