BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A former Louisiana State Penitentiary corrections cadet has been accused of sexual misconduct while on duty at the prison.

The state Department of Public Safety and Corrections says West Feliciana Parish sheriff's detectives arrested 20-year-old Pernell J. Glover Jr., of Baton Rouge, Friday on charges of malfeasance in office and sexual contact prohibited with persons in the custody and supervision of the department. He was later released. Bond information was not immediately available.

Authorities say Glover allegedly performed oral sex on an offender. The inmate photographed the alleged incident with a contraband cellphone and shared the photos with a relative and his attorney, who turned them over to the department.

Glover was hired Oct. 17. He resigned Dec. 20, the same day the department received the photographs.
