The woman whom authorities say was sexually assaulted by Grand Island city councilman Fred Whitesides told jurors Tuesday that she knew Whitesides' contact with her was wrong.

The woman also said she developed feelings for the former corrections officer during her stay at the Hall County Jail.

Whitesides is charged with two counts of sexual assault on a female inmate for incidents that occurred between Nov. 15 and Dec. 15, 2001. He was charged and fired from his job the following April.
