PINEVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A former Bell County Forestry Camp employee has pleaded guilty to charge of rape.
WYMT-TV in Hazard reported that Tasha Knuckles entered the plea Monday morning and prosecutors recommended a five-year probated sentence.

Investigators say they have more than 50 hours of phone conversations between Knuckles and the inmate.
A judge will sentence Knuckles on September 15th.
