PHOENIX -- An Arizona Department of Corrections officer has been arrested on suspicion of having sex with an inmate.

Anthony Marotta, 26, allegedly had sex with an unidentified female inmate in a prison van on Tuesday.

Authorities say the female inmate admitted to having another encounter with Marotta in November.

Marotta was arrested at the Arizona State Prison Complex-Perryville. He was transferred to the facility July 5, 2013, after working about two years at the Arizona State Prison Complex-Lewis.

Marotta resigned during the investigation.
