A 27 year old female prison officer has been charged to court for having an inappropriate relationship with a prisoner at HMP Deerbolt in England.
Sutherland spoke only to confirm her name, address and date of birth during the five-minute hearing.
She was granted unconditional bail by District Judge Tim Capstick to appear at Teesside Crown Court on December 6.
It holds around 500 prisoners aged between 18-21 generally serving sentences of about four years.
Separately, staff took the decision earlier this year to photocopy all letters and photos coming in to the prison after they discovered some were soaked in drugs.
Mates of the prisoners were spraying the post with liquid spice which could then be rolled up and smoked or sold on inside the jail.
