BATON ROUGE - A social worker at a state juvenile detention center has been booked with malfeasance in office and fired for an alleged sexual relationship with a 20-year-old inmate, according to a Baton Rouge newspaper.

The Advocate reports that 39-year-old Lashonda Lang, of Baton Rouge, was a social worker at the Jetson Center for Youth in Baker. She was arrested Thursday and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, where she's being held on $25,000 bond.

An arrest warrant says Lang was responsible for counseling the inmate when the alleged relationship began at some time last year.
