Authorities: Corrections officer accused of personal contact with inmate
Natasha Wilson

A former Georgia Department of Corrections officer is accused of having “personal contact with an inmate” at the Budgetel Inn in Gainesville, according to court documents.

Natasha Denise Wilson, 32, of Americus, was charged with violation of oath of office. She was booked Wednesday in to the Hall County Jail and was later released.

When contacted by The Times, Wilson said she could not comment at this time.

According to the warrant, Wilson is accused of having contact with the inmate on Feb. 9. The address listed in the warrant is for the Budgetel Inn on Jesse Jewell Parkway.

Department of Corrections officials said Wilson started in October 2015 as a correctional officer at Macon State Prison and resigned Feb. 22.

“The details surrounding her arrest and oath violation cannot be released, as the investigation remains open,” Department of Corrections public affairs director Joan Heath wrote in an email.
