A former Wabash Valley Correctional Facility Officer, Adrien Higgins, is being accused of trafficking with an inmate.  Higgins, 30, was questioned on August 6 about the issue.

She admitted to smuggling tobacco in earlier this month for money for Timothy Lear, and also said she had an inappropriate relationship with him.

She was fired and faced a criminal charge of trafficking tobacco to an inmate. She posted bond in Sullivan Vounty and was released over the weekend.
