CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a Bonneau nurse they say was caught performing a sex act on an inmate inside the Charleston County jail last month.

Charleston County investigators said Friday 33-year-old Angela Marie Smith was charged with first-degree sexual misconduct with an inmate.

Authorities say Smith was working as a contract nurse at the jail on May 28 when a guard caught her in the act with an inmate. The inmate pulled up his pants and told the officer not to say anything, but she called her supervisor.

Court records show the inmate last week was found not guilty of assault and battery but is being held on charges in another county. Smith was released on bail Friday, and it was not immediately clear if she had an attorney.
