Jailer Jailed For Sex With Inmate

A Wood County jailer has been arrested, accused of having sex with one of her inmates.

Thirty-nine year old Cynthia Lynn Cook resigned as a jailer Monday after learning she was the target of an internal investigation by the Wood County Sheriff's Department. Cook was arrested Thursday, and charged with improper sexual activity with a person in custody.

Additional charges may be filed, as Cook is also alleged to have brought controlled substances for the inmate into the jail.

Cook has been released on ten thousand dollars bail.
