CLEVELAND — A Cuyahoga County jailer has resigned after allegedly engaging in an improper relationship with an inmate, according to a spokesperson.

Sources told 5 On Your Side Investigators that the male corrections officer supervised the female inmate and that the officer has been placed on restricted duty pending the outcome of the investigation.

The sheriff's department says the officer had worked at the jail since 2005.

Ten current and former jail employees have been indicted so far this year for a variety of crimes. Those charged include the former jail director and former warden. All have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.
