LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –
Authorities said an inmate received a lot more than just sound legal guidance from his attorney on her visits to the Clark County Detention Center.
Investigators stated they believed something odd was going on between Alexis Plunkett and Andrew Arevalo, so they established a concealed camera during their frequent visitations. Police stated she had “fifteen (15) sees in twenty-eight days,” primarily late during the night. They stated they believed the 2 were involved in sexual conduct, especially after a corrections officer discovered an envelope with a heart on it in Arevalo’s cell which read, “I constantly thinking of you Alexis.”
Arevalo “is a confessed and documented Sureno gang member who goes by the moniker of ‘Quiet,'” inning accordance with the police. He was condemned of several charges, including smuggling methamphetamine into prison and prohibited ownership of a gun.
In 2015, Lieutenant Ronald Bryant reported seeing Arevalo fondle Plunkett’s breasts, twice, inside of a visitation room at High Desert State Jail.
“I informed Ms. Plunkett regarding why the see was terminated and initially, she rejected anything happening,” Bryant composed in his disciplinary report. “When I explained the occurrence was tape-recorded on video camera she specified, ‘I’m sorry.'”
Although Plunkett’s arrest originates from comparable gos to with Arevalo in a visitation room, the videos do not reveal the fondling of any breasts. Instead, a camera inside the Clark County Detention Center supposedly revealed Plunkett and Arevalo costs hours together chuckling, texting and making telephone call. The 2 shared Altoid mints, a Snickers sweet bar, lip balm and long kisses.
During one see, Plunkett “seems taking a look at the concealed video camera” and “appears psychological,” according to the cops.
“Arevalo appears agitated and begins replicating a telephone several times with his left hand,” composed Detective Aaron Stanton. “She appeared as if she was weeping … she then starts to use make-up to her face.”
Attorneys are permitted to bring mobile phone into the prison, however first they need to sign an Electronic Telecommunications Device Acknowledgment Type, which states: “Making use of a cellular phone is only authorized to get in touch with CCDC staff or 911 in the event of an emergency. Unauthorized use will subject the user to criminal prosecution.”
Plunkett has been accuseded of 12 felonies.

— Adam Herbets (@AdamHerbets) June 2, 2017 Before Plunkett’s arrest, officers asked her about the cell phone. She declared Arevalo never touched her phone, which cops stated contradicts their proof.
“However is he in there making telephone call talking with his homies and things? No, One Hundred Percent no,” Plunkett supposedly informed the police. “I’m certainly not trying to hide anything.”
Cops said they checked out the call and found out the couple invested hours calling other gang members and Arevalo’s parents.
When cops asked Plunkett about her relationship with Arevalo, she supposedly stated she didn’t “wish to enter into that.” Since her arrest, she published an image on her professional Facebook page portraying Arevalo kissing her on the cheek.

— Adam Herbets (@AdamHerbets) June 2, 2017 Defense attorney Bill Terry, who isn’t really associated with this case, said he knows Plunkett. He said technically kissing or sharing food with an inmate may not be a criminal offense, however it’s absolutely versus “the rules.”
Terry also mentioned lawyers are not supposed to represent anybody with whom they remain in a dating relationship, due to the fact that it creates a conflict of interest. This could be punished by the State Bar of Nevada.
Plunkett has represented Arevalo for many years. In 2014, he was associated with a battle with another inmate at High Desert State Prison. A corrections officer shot both prisoners with a shotgun. Arevalo made it through. The other male passed away. Plunkett filed a lawsuit.
In April 2017, police jailed Arevalo at his mom’s home. Officers said Plunkett was currently there.
“At the time of contact, Plunkett was sitting with Arevalo on the front patio and the 2 were drinking beer,” read the report.
FOX5 connected to Plunkett for comment, but she declined an interview.
“Unless I can determine the entire thing I say no,” Plunkett wrote from her expert Facebook page. “I cannot control the interview so my answer is no. However I have a lot to state, trust me.”
