Former correctional officer pleads guilty in corruption case
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A former correctional officer has pleaded guilty in a corruption case.
52-year-old Eugenio Dimas of Las Vegas entered the plea on Wednesday to one count of misconduct of a public officer, a felony.
Dimas had been employed as a correctional officer at Florence McClure Women's Correctional Center.
In Feb. of this year, investigators arrested Dimas after being tipped off about a relationship he was having with an inmate. The investigators then intercepted prisoner telephone calls between Dimas and the inmate, which confirmed the allegations.
Dimas is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 3.
Dimas was hired by the Nevada Department of Corrections in Jan. 2007 and was terminated from employment in April 2013.
