Jail guard fired may have more legal trouble

Shady Daniels,III faces felony charges for having sex with an inmate inside the jail walls. Now he may also be in trouble for a deadly accident just outside the walls. Back in August at an intersection at the government complex in Bolivia, state troopers say Daniels was involved in a collision that killed a jogger; 36- year- old Lisa Thompson. Thompson died at New Hanover Regional Medical Center about a week later. North Carolina Highway Patrol Officers are in the middle of recreating the accident to find out exactly what happened. The reconstruction team hope to complete the investigation by the end of this month. That's about the time of Daniels' next court hearing on the sex case. Brunswick County authorities say on November 18th, Detention Officer Shady Daniels,III had consensual sex with a female inmate just inside the jail at a nurses station. Daniels was fired and so was his alleged accomplice Deputy Moraima Cortes. Daniels could be sent to prison for about eight years on the sex charge and two more years if he's convicted in connection with the accident.
