From the AP via NBC 4 in Washington, D.C.: 2 Corrections Officers Charged With Having Sex With Inmate [emphasis mine]:
Two female Prince William County corrections officers have been charged with having sexual relations with the same former inmate while he was still in the county’s custody on house arrest.
The two women apparently never knew about each other, authorities said.
Maria C. Torres-Corbin, 48, a master jail officer with almost 20 years’ experience, was arrested last week and charged with having carnal knowledge of an inmate, a felony. Torres-Corbin, of Fredericksburg, recently had been assigned to the work-release center, where she was responsible for checking on inmates in the electronic-monitoring program.
Then, on Wednesday, police charged Tamara Fay Bonos, 32, with the same crime.
Bonos, of Manassas, was an entry-level officer who worked at the main building of the regional jail for 18 months, said the jail’s superintendent, Col. Charles “Skip” Land.
Police said the corrections officers were off-duty when the incidents occurred at the inmate’s home. They said the man had been held in the county jail before he was put on work release and then on electronic monitoring while at home, police said.
“It was consensual,” Land said, “but if you read the code, the female officers had custodial rights over him. … Therein lies the problem.”
I’m absolutely certain he would have made that comment if the two correction officers had been male.
