Charlotte County, FL – May 11, 2023

A civilian Jail Laundry Clerk has been arrested on multiple charges after engaging in an inappropriate sexual relationship with an inmate at the Charlotte County Jail.

On May 10, detention staff observed unusual behavior from a jail laundry clerk, identified as Amy L. Dice, who attempted to contact an inmate while dropping off laundry in a pod. The inmate in question was set to be transferred to a state prison facility the following day. Staff intercepted the laundry bag, and during a subsequent search, corrections deputies discovered contraband that included a love note and candy.

This information was then brought to the attention of jail command and Internal Affairs. During the investigation, detectives interviewed Dice, who made admissions to investigators of her relationship with the inmate.

Dice has been employed with the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office since August 2022.

“We hold all of our employees to the highest standards of professionalism and ethical behavior, and any violation of that standard will not be tolerated,” said Sheriff Bill Prummell. “We take the safety and security of our facility and the inmates entrusted to our care very seriously.”

 Dice is currently being held at the Charlotte County Jail on the following charges, two counts Introduction of Contraband into a detention facility (misdemeanors), and two counts Sexual Misconduct between detention facility employees and inmates (felonies).
