New York – A female corrections officer at a federal prison has been charged after engaging in an affair with an inmate convicted of killing two police officers. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Nancy Gonzalez, 29, who allegedly became pregnant in June as a result of her affair with Ronell Wilson, stands accused of intentionally engaging in a sex act with the inmate while working at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.
Gonzalez is quoted by the AP as stating in court papers, “I know what’s to come. I know what is going to be said about me… How am I going to explain this to this little boy? Mommy was in the military … Mommy was a C.O., Mommy got wrapped up … And then the opposite end is with a person who took lives. So how do you explain that?”
Gonzalez was released on a $150,000 bond during a court appearance on Tuesday. If convicted, she faces a prison sentence of 15 years.
