Prison guard accused of having sex with girl

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) -- Police in Homestead have charged a state prison guard with having sex with a 15-year-old girl whom he met at a Dollar Tree store.

Citing arrest documents, news outlets reported that 35-year-old Detrick Hussey was arrested Thursday and charged with lewd and lascivious battery on a child.

Hussey works at Dade Correctional Institution, but Florida Department of Corrections spokeswoman Michelle Glady tells the Miami Herald the department is now moving to fire him.

Police say the suspect and the girl had dinner in Miami on Saturday and drank alcohol at a bar before Hussey then drove the girl to his home, where they had sex.

Police are also investigating how the girl managed to order drinks at the bar.

It is unclear whether Hussey has an attorney.
