TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A former Topeka Correctional Facility officer who had sex with inmates has been ordered to pay $750,000 to one of the inmates.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Rogers ordered the fine against former guard Nathan Van Dyke. Under a plea agreement in 2010, Van Dyke was found guilty on two counts of improper sexual conduct with female prison inmates. He received probation.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported (http://bit.ly/NH41of ) Van Dyke didn't respond to a lawsuit filed against him by John Kurtz, an attorney representing former inmate Rebecca Fleetwood.

Court records indicate Rogers signed an order Monday entering the civil judgment against Van Dyke.

The judge's order also releases supervisors at the prison and Kansas Department of Correction officials from the lawsuit because the state paid a $30,000 settlement to Fleetwood.
