(Lancaster) -- A former kitchen supervisor at a Pennsylvania prison has admitted having sex with an inmate inside a produce cooler at the facility.

25-year-old Jacqueline Uber pleaded guilty Thursday to institutional sexual assault. She's been sentenced to six months of electronically monitored house arrest followed by two years of probation.

Police say the Lancaster woman had sex with an unnamed inmate in the Lancaster County Prison kitchen on multiple occasions last year. Investigators say the inmate worked in the kitchen and Uber was his supervisor.

No charges were filed against the inmate and it's unclear if he was disciplined.

Authorities say Uber admitted to the crime when questioned by police last year and resigned from her position as kitchen supervisor soon after.
