KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

New charges have been filed against two former corrections officers from the Jackson County Detention Center. 

Andrew Dickerson, 26, and Jalee Fuller, 29, were charged in two separate indictments returned by a grand jury Tuesday in Kansas City. 

Also indicted in relation to alleged conspiracies to smuggle contraband cell phones and items was Carlos Hughley, 32. He is an inmate at the Jackson County Detention Center. Janikkia Carter and Marion Byers, acquaintances of Fuller and Hughley, were also indicted. 

Dickerson and Fuller were corrections officers at the Jackson County Detention Center.

Hughley is an inmate at the detention center. He is currently awaiting trial after being previously charged with domestic assault, armed criminal action, resisting arrest and multiple counts of distributing controlled substances.

According to the United States Attorney's Office, Hughley is believed to be the father of Fuller’s recently born child.

Dickerson was charged in a four-count indictment. Hughley, Carter, Byers and Fuller have been charged in a separate 10-count indictment.

The five defendants are accused of violating the Travel Act.
