The probation officer accused of having sexual contact with an inmate is scheduled to appear on the charges in October.

An arraignment was set Thursday for Shawnna Layton, 41, of Sweet Springs.

Layton has been out on bail since the charges were filed in May.

The allegations stem from a 2009 incident.

If convicted she could face up to four years in prison and a maximum fine of $20,000.

Layton is set to appear in a Saline County courtroom on October 11 at 10:00 a.m.
