A Florida police sergeant, Katelyn Gomez, was arrested for writing inappropriate letters to a 16-year-old inmate at the juvenile detention center where she worked.

Approximately 10 letters were found in the boy’s bed describing their planned sexual encounter and relationship.

“The letters explicitly described what would take place during their first sexual encounter and described an ongoing relationship which had developed while the victim was incarcerated,” the sheriff’s office stated.

A photo of Gomez was also found.

When interviewed, Gomez admitted writing the letters and said she had developed feelings for the boy over the past few weeks while assigned to his pod, despite rules against being alone with inmates.

Gomez told detectives that “she fantasized about having a sexual relationship with the victim and planned to build a life with him once he was released,” according to the PCSO.

Gomez was charged with solicitation of a child to engage in a sexual act by a person in authority and booked into jail.
