Guard pregnant by cop killer according to an article posted today at New York Magazine. The article says a female corrections officer in Brooklyn was charged with sexual abuse of an inmate after having inappropriate relations with a convicted murderer, "for more than four months last year in plain view of other inmates.”
Prosecutors say Nancy Gonzalez is eight months pregnant with the child of inmate Ronell Wilson. Wilson was sentenced to death for killing two undercover police officers in 2003. However that sentence was overturned in an appeal, and he is awaiting his retrial for sentencing.
As if the above info is not bad enough, Wilson’s defense attorney claims the inmate is “mentally retarded and therefore cannot face capital punishment.” One news source claims Wilson "hatched a plan to avoid the death penalty by impregnating a female guard."
"I took a chance because I was so vulnerable and wanted to be loved and now I am carrying his child," said Gonzalez. "Why not give him a child as far as giving him some kind of hope,” she added.
Authorities became aware of the guard pregnant by a cop killer after they heard a recorded phone call from Gonzalez to her boyfriend -- who is in state prison.
What are your thoughts on this guard being pregnant by a cop killer? What penalties should she face for having relations with an inmate, and then becoming pregnant? Do you think she deliberately got pregnant?
