A female prison guard has been charged with rape after having sex with a male inmate at a maximum-security state prison in the Hudson Valley, Fox News 5 New York reports.
State police say that Tyshinia Love Brewster was in a sexual relationship with an inmate at Downstate Correctional Facility in Fishkill. She has been employed there for 7 1/2 years. Brewster, 39, of Poughkeepsie was arrested at her home on Wednesday. She also faces an official misconduct charge in addition to the rape charge.
Police say that Brewster and the inmate–who has not been named–would meet in the cell where he was housed during her shift assignment. The two have allegedly been intimate since 2010. The inmate, who was imprisoned as a result of a felony conviction out of New York City, has been transferred to another prison. Police say Brewster is six months pregnant with the inmate’s baby.
