JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) — An Army sergeant who was working at a prison faces charges after being accused of a sexual relationship with an inmate that resulted in her pregnancy.
Heather Sinnett, 27, is a sergeant at Camp Atterbury and a worker at the Edinburgh Correctional Facility. Court documents said her duties included escorting and supervising offenders with the Indiana Department of Correction and that she was formerly a correctional officer.
Sinnett is accused of sexual misconduct with an inmate, a Level 5 felony, punishable by one to six years in prison.
Investigators said that phone intelligence and emails reveal that Bradley Gulledge is the likely father of Sinnett’s expected child. Gulledge had been imprisoned for approximately 11 days before the encounter is alleged to have occurred. He was imprisoned for dealing meth and received an eight-year sentence.
In an interview with investigators, Gulledge said the pair had sex in a mop closet while getting ice from a building.
Sinnett told the Army that she was pregnant on Dec. 12. The incident is believed to have occurred on Oct. 14. She refused to interview with investigators but state the act was consensual. Emails discovered that she is waiting for him to get out so that they can be together and take care of “their” baby.
