LAS VEGAS -- A former correctional officer for a women's prison pleaded guilty Wednesday to a count of felony misconduct of a public officer, Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto announced.

Eugenio Dimas, 52, of Las Vegas, was working at Florence McClure Women's Correctional Center when in February investigators received a tip that Dimas was having a relationship with an inmate.

Investigators tapped phone calls between Dimas and the inmate, confirming the allegations made against him, according to Masto's office. Relationships between officers and inmates are against Nevada law.

"Our office takes seriously any allegations of misconduct by public employees," Masto said.

Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 3.
