A US corrections officer has been jailed after she cut a hole in her trousers to have sex with an inmate in front of 11 other prisoners.
Tina Gonzalez, 26, quit after being arrested in May last year when bosses found out about the ‘depraved’ sexual fantasy she carried out at Fresno County Jail, in California.
Despite it being illegal for prison staff to have sexual relations with inmates, Gonzalez cut her uniform so she could have sex with a prisoner while 11 others watched, local outlet The Frenso Bee reported.
She has since shown ‘no remorse’ and has ‘sexually explicit’ phone calls with the prisoner regularly, her former boss, assistant sheriff Steve McComas told the court on Tuesday.
He said he had seen ‘pretty disgusting things’ in his 26 years of working at a prison but Gonzalez’s actions topped his list.
Gonzalez, who had worked as a corrections officer for more than three years, has also been ‘boasting’ about her crimes since committing them, Mr McComas added.
He said: ‘That is something only a depraved mind can come up with.
‘She took an oath which she betrayed and in doing so endangered her coworkers’ lives.’
