A former Ector County Youth Center employee plead guilty Monday to sexual assault of a child and improper relationship with a person in custody.

Ector County District Attorney Bobby Bland said the sentencing phase for Amber Mendoza, 26, could start as early as tomorrow.

According to the arrest report, she had sex with a 16-year-old inmate while he was on a weekend furlough, last August.

It says Mendoza met up with the teen at his mother's RV in West Odessa, where the two had sex in the kitchen.

Other details from the arrest report include the fact that the teen told other inmates what happened between the two, that Mendoza confessed to deputies that they had sex, and that she had let inmates use her cell phone.
