INDEPENDENCE, Ky. - Outside the office of her new attorney, Eric Deters, Michelle Jackson told reporters that she did not have sex with an inmate under her supervision.
"The people who know me know that this is false," said Jackson Thursday afternoon.
The married mother of three is alleged to have had sex with Eric Coleman who she supervised while an officer with the Dearborn County Community Corrections Office.
In February, Jackson pleaded not guilty to the charge of sexual misconduct by a service provider. The Dearborn County Prosecutor's Office alleges that on three occasions she had sex with Coleman.
Jackson says that Coleman's story is not only false but varies widely in consistency because he has claimed that it happened in seven different locations.
"'It was at this location in a personal van' or 'she picked me up here in the company car' but he's told so many lies that he's not able to keep track," said Jackson.
Jackson said Coleman expressed a desire to have a relationship with her but she rejected his advances.
"My boss said that she felt that he was a ladies man," said Jackson.
The prosecutor's office alleges that the two had sex in a community corrections van in the parking lot of the Dollar General store in Lawrenceburg, in the home of Coleman's mother and in the van outside the home of his mother.
Jackson allegedly increased the perimeter of Coleman's home incarceration bracelet so that the two could have sex on the occasion outside his mother's home.
Jackson admits to changing the perimeter but not for that reason. However, in her interview with 9 News she seemed to contradict part of her story as she told it.
"There were three times I had to change the radius on his monitoring device. The first two times I did while in the presence of another field officer because I didn't know how to do it and that it was because [the device] was going out of range. It's hard to explain. The third time I was not at work," Jackson then paused, "So the third time that wasn't even done by me."
Deters told 9 News that he plans to write a letter to the Dearborn County Prosecutor Aaron Negengard to simply ask him to drop the charge.
"They have nothing," said Deters of the evidence.
Jackson's trial is scheduled for next March.
