Jefferson Parish youth center counselor arrested

A 32-year-old counselor at the Bridge City Center for Youth has been arrested after authorities discovered she had improper contact with one of youths held at the facility.

The Times-Picayune reports Shantel Fitzgerald of New Orleans was booked Friday with sexual malfeasance in a prison after it was determined she had a sexual relationship with an inmate at the facility. Fitzgerald was taken into custody after an investigation by the state Department of Juvenile Justice, but has since been released.
