A married probation officer has been jailed for 10 months after she had a four-month relationship with a high-risk violent offender.
Victoria Sellar, who qualified as a probation officer in 2018, abused her position by forming a sexual relationship with a man after his release from Harplands Hospital in Staffordshire.
The couple sent more than 6,000 texts to each other and Sellar sent him a naked photograph of herself during their four-month affair, the court heard.
They had spent a weekend away in Blackpool together, where he became involved in violence.
But Sellar, from Stapleford in Nottinghamshire, failed to report the incident as a breach of his licence conditions.
