HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

According to a Mississippi Attorney General's Office investigation, a Hinds County inmate didn't conceive a child while in a jury room bathroom adjoining a Hinds County courtroom.

The investigation revealed inmate Gabrielle Jones actually had consensual sex with inmate Jimmie Lomax on the back seat of a transport van.

According to the Attorney General's Office, the inmates were being moved from the Jackson Detention Center to the Raymond Detention Center and were wearing appropriate restraints and handcuffs at the time.

A previous Hinds County Sheriff's Office investigation into the pregnancy had different findings.

In January, Hinds County Sheriff Tyrone Lewis said his investigation revealed the inmate had consensual sex with a male inmate in a jury room bathroom. The pregnant inmate said she was handcuffed and left unattended with at least eight male inmates by a court bailiff.

After the Attorney General's Office released the findings of its investigation Tuesday, the Hinds County Sheriff's Office released the following statement:

"The Hinds County Sheriff's Office did a very thorough and complete investigation into this matter, including questioning the inmate who became impregnated. Our investigation was completed months ago and we stand by our findings."

Jones was arrested by Jackson police May 23, 2012 and charged with receiving stolen goods, business burglary and violation of probation.
