I can’t believe another New York female correction officer was arrested for having sex with an inmate. 39-year-old Tyshinia Love Brewster, a guard at maximum-security state prison in the Hudson Valley, was charged with third-degree rape and official misconduct.
Officials say Brewster had been involved in a sexual relationship with an inmate at Downstate Correctional Facility in Fishkill, where she has worked for the past 7½ years. Police say the two would meet during her shift assignment in the cell block where the inmate was housed.
Brewster, who was charged with rape because an inmate cannot legally consent to sex, was released on her own recognizance after promising to re-appear in court on March 20.
The inmate is incarcerated as a result of a felony conviction in New York City.
