COLUMBIA, MS (WDAM) - A former Columbia Police Officer pleaded guilty to sexual activity with an inmate Tuesday in Marion County.
Richard Charles Pack pleaded guilty to one count of sexual activity between certain individuals and offenders incarcerated in correctional facilities or on correctional supervision.
Pack was sentenced to five years, with four and a half suspended, with six months to serve and register as a sex offender.
According to District Attorney Hal Kitrell, this is the same sentence that Pack received in Madison County, for the same charge, and the two sentences are set to run concurrent.
Pack and three other law enforcement officers, Justin Codey Herrington, Vasan Josea Oatis and Shawn Michael Williams were all previously charged with having "sexual activity" with an inmate, with her consent, which is a felony.
