FRAKES, Ky. (WATE) - A female Bell County Forestry Camp worker was arrested Friday, charged with raping a male inmate.

Tasha Knuckles, 28, is charged with third degree rape and is being housed in the Bell County Detention Center.

Kentucky State Police say Bell County Forestry Camp, a minimum security facility located near Pineville, contacted them in May about one of their employees having sexual contact with a male inmate.

Officials began an investigation and obtained over 50 hours of phone conversations between Knuckles and the inmate.

The case is still under investigation.
