A national news magazine program is interested in a story about a former Prosser mayor convicted of molesting a teenage boy last year.
Benton County Sheriff Steve Keane confirmed that cameras from ABC's 20/20 were at the jail Wednesday to get footage of Linda Lusk being released.
The camera crew showed up at 4 a.m. and Lusk was released around 5 a.m.
Lusk also was filmed in the sheriff's office when she filled out paperwork and got her mug shot taken as part of her court-order requirement to register as a sex offender.

"I was kind of reluctant to do this because I feel like it revictimized the victim, but Linda Lusk wanted to do it," Keane said.
Lusk, 50, was sentenced to three months in jail after pleading guilty to third-degree child molestation for inappropriately touching a 14-year-old boy.
She served her time on work release, which meant she slept at the facility but was released each day to work.
Lusk will have to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
Keane said he was told that 20/20 staff will return at some point in the future to interview sheriff's detectives and Prosecutor Andy Miller.
The boy's mother and Miller also reportedly met with a producer from the show this week.
