A Harris County Juvenile Justice Center jailer accused of trading candy for sexual favors with a teenage inmate at the facility made his first court appearance.

Robert Emerson Robinson, 28, appeared before a judge Friday morning. Police say he admitted to having sex with the 15-year-old girl. Officers also say they have surveillance video of him entering the girl's cell on May 23.

Robinson has been fired and charged with sexual assault with a child under 17.

The girl reportedly told police she allowed him to have sex with her because he provided her with candy and other treats.
