Two Mid-South prison officers have been fired and are facing felony charges after having sex with inmates.

The officers were employed at West Tennessee State Penitentiary in Henning, located in Lauderdale County.

Laura Hudson was an officer on the male side of the facility and Frederick Pegues worked on the newly created women's housing. Both are accused of having sexual relations with inmates.

Pegues is expected to plead guilty to the charges this week and Hudson is due in court Thursday.
