COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A correctional officer with the Columbus Public Works was arrested after allegedly aiding an inmate with an escape plan while working.

Casey Davis, 31, was taken into custody on Monday, facing charges of aiding or permitting another to escape, false statements and writings, reckless conduct, and violating his oath as a public officer.

According to the Muscogee County Warden, an inmate left the work detail during a 10-minute break to have sex under Davis' supervision.

Davis' attorney, Stacey Jackson says there is no evidence that Davis was aware or helped the inmate in any way.

The inmate is being charged with escape. 

The woman, who is being identified as Faith Luben who met the inmate is being charged with loitering near inmates and trading with inmates without the consent of a warden.

This all taking place on Torch Hill Road on Friday morning. 

All three, the correctional officer, the inmate, and Luben made their first appearances in court Wednesday morning.

Davis' bond was set at $7,500 and he has since been released.

All three cases for Davis, Luben, and the inmate have been bound over to Superior Court.
