Another Texas Youth Commission employee pleads guilty to sexual misconduct, this time at the Sheffield Boot Camp.  

Shannon Griffen pled guilty in district court this week to two counts of violating the rights of a person in custody.

Griffin admitted to engaging in sexual activity with one of the youths in custody.

She got four years of supervised probation, a 500 dollar fine, and one hundred twenty hours of community service.

Griffen can get out of the community service by donating 300 dollars worth of food to a local non-profit group, of the judge's choice.

The food donation clause is part of a new law implemented by the Texas Legistature.
