Daniels is serving a life sentence, plus 23 years for the 2006 death of Adrian Patton.
During his 2008 trial, the jury decided Daniels ordered fellow Skyline Bloods gang member Timothy Evans to carry out the hit against Patton.
Daniels is eligible for parole in 2072.
Foxe was charged with one felony count of sex with prisoners.
She was booked into the Metro jail on $10,000 bond.
According to Dorinda Carter, Communications Director with the Tennessee Department of Correction, she was hired in February 2013.
This kind of illicit behavior is not uncommon in prisons.
As previously reported by NewsOne, Tavon White, the leader of the Black Guerrilla Family who impregnated four guards inside of the Baltimore City Detention Center, pleaded guilty to federal racketeering conspiracy charges in August of 2013.
White, nicknamed “Bulldog,” admitted to smuggling drugs and phones inside of the jail. During a “slow month,” he claimed he earned more than $15,000 with the assistance of a “harem of correctional officers,” reports the Baltimore City Paper.
Of the six correctional officers, 4 gave birth to White’s children, and 2 tattooed his name on their body — one on the neck and other other on the wrist.
