A female California corrections officer with a “depraved mind” has been jailed for reportedly having sex with an inmate — in full view of 11 other jailbirds.
Tina Gonzalez, 26, even cut a hole in her uniform pants — to make it easier to have sex in Fresno County Jail, her sentencing hearing was told on Tuesday, according to The Fresno Bee.
Her former boss, Assistant Sheriff Steve McComas, told the court that he had witnessed many “pretty disgusting things” during his 26-years on the job — but nothing as shocking as hearing of Gonzalez’s sex session in full view of other inmates.
“That is something only a depraved mind can come up with,” McComas told the court, according to the local paper.
Gonzalez — who quit after being arrested in May last year — also supplied the same inmate with razors, a cell phone and advance warnings when his cell was going to be searched, the reports said.
“She took an oath which she betrayed and in doing so endangered her coworkers’ lives,” McComas said.
“But she has shown no remorse. She continually calls and has sexually explicit conversations with the inmate in question and boasts about the crimes she carried out,” he told the court, according to the Bee.
Gonzalez pleaded no contest in April to sexual activity by a detention facility employee with a consenting inmate, as well as possessing drugs or alcohol, and a cell phone to give to an inmate, the outlet said.
Her former boss called for her to get the maximum sentence of three years and eight months in prison.
But Judge Michael Idiart noted her early plea and lack of criminal history as he sentenced her Tuesday to seven months in the county jail followed by two years of probation.
“I think what you did was terrible, stupid and you have ruined your career,” Idiart told Gonzalez.
“But I also believe that people can redeem themselves and you have the rest of your life to do that. Good luck,” the judge told her.
