NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A correctional officer charged with having sex with an inmate also regularly communicated with inmates on social media, a Channel 4 I-Team investigation found.

Kenyetta Foxe was arrested this week for allegedly having sex with convicted murderer Michael Daniels at Riverbend Maximum Security Prison.

A Channel 4 I-Team investigation found Foxe is friends with several inmates on Facebook and Instagram and openly communicated with them.

We found one of her friends, who goes by the name "Dough Boy," has images on his Facebook page of himself rapping and eating pizza inside prison.

His Facebook profile shows he is friends with Foxe.

When "Dough Boy" wrote that he got stabbed, Foxe wrote on his Facebook page on May 9 that she saw him afterwards and "it was great seeing him and talking to him for a minute."

Foxe's profile shows she is friends with other inmates who appear to still be in prison.

The Channel 4 I-Team showed the postings to Davidson County Sheriff Darron Hall, who has long forbidden correctional officers in his jails to have any relationship with inmates.

"She wouldn't work here. It's as simple as that. You can't do that and work here," said Hall.

Hall said it is widely recognized that correctional officers cannot have any relationship with inmates, even on social media.

The Channel 4 I-Team found, at one point, Foxe posted a picture of herself, and then another inmate, Stevie Dickson, reposted the picture on his own timeline. Dickson is at West Tennessee State Penitentiary where Foxe once worked.

When Dickson showed the picture, he wrote, "I need it in my life."

When Dickson posted that he needed support, Foxe wrote, "I got you."

We wanted to know if the Tennessee Department of Correction was aware of the Facebook communications, and a spokeswoman said it is an ongoing investigation.

"The Tennessee Department of Correction remains vigilant in our fight to reduce contraband in our facilities and will prosecute and discipline those found with illegal items. It is important to note that the arrest of the officer at Riverbend was a result of our efforts to operate safe and secure prisons and detect contraband," said spokeswoman Neysa Taylor in a statement to the Channel 4 I-Team.

We went by Foxe's home after she bonded out of jail, but no one was home.
