Update on youth detention workers involved in probe

Columbus (WTVM)--

The Georgia Juvenile Justice Department has released the names of two workers who are under investigation at the Aaron Cohn Youth Detention Center on Chattsworth Road in Columbus.  Director of Public Relations Steve Hayes says Audrian Ward and Manda Fountain are on paid leave pending the investigation.

The probe involves pornographic pictures that were found during a search of the male inmate pods. Sources say nearly 100 nude photos were discovered. They are believed to have been printed from the employees' staff computers.

Hayes says inmates are only allowed to use computer during class time and under the supervision of staff.  The usage of staff computers is strictly prohibited.

No word on when the investigation will be completed.
