The investigation began in March when Arnett was working in the jails kitchen for Aramark, a national food service company. Court documents say Arnett traded alcohol, tobacco, and a cell phone for sexual favors with inmates.
In court Friday, Arnett pleaded guilty to two charges. The District Attorney’s office dismissed the other six. Those charges include prostitution, supplying contraband and sexual misconduct.
In addition to serving 3 years of probation Arnett is ordered to have no contact with inmates, and will be required to undergo counseling.
