Three officers at Gadsden Correctional Institution have been fired as part of a continuing investigation into inappropriate relationships between officers and female inmates.

The terminiations come on the heels of the firings of four other officers in recent months who were let go for the same inappropriate behavior.

According to the Florida Department of Corrections, the investigation focused on letters, pictures and accusations of sexual encounters.

The DOC reports stated that Eric Conrad, William Wood and Anthony Curinton were all found to have exhibited inappropriate behavior toward female inmates.

Conrad has been accused of having sex with an inmate on five different occasions. Although the DOC has yet to prove the encounters took place, Conrad did have photos of the woman on his cell phone.

Wood was carrying a photo of a female inmate in his bag, and Curinton had written a letter to one of the inmates.

The behavior of another officer is also under investigation.

Although the former officers will not face criminal charges, they must now fight to keep their law enforcement certification.

Calls to the Corrections Corporation of America, which runs GCI, were not returned by press time.
