Ex-guard at private immigrant detention center pleads guilty

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A former guard at a private immigrant detention center in San Antonio has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a detainee.

Barbara Jean Goodwin worked at the Central Texas Detention Facility, which The GEO Group operates near downtown San Antonio for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The 35-year-old woman entered her plea Tuesday before a federal magistrate in San Antonio. She could be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison for having sex with a federal inmate between February and August 2016.

Goodwin is scheduled to be sentenced June 12.
