Tyshinia Brewster, New York prison guard, pregnant from inmate, charged with rape

Tyshinia Love Brewster was a correction officer at the Downstate Correctional Facility in Poughkeepsie, New York, but now finds herself six months pregnant, carrying the child of one of the inmates.

Brewster was charged with third-degree rape because incarcerated individuals are not legally able to consent to sex.

According to the New York Post, authorities believe Brewster’s relationship with the inmate began in 2010.

The official statement says: “The two would become intimate during her shift assignments at the prison on the cell block on which the inmate was housed.  It is also alleged, as a result of this relationship, BREWSTER is approximately 6 months pregnant with the inmate’s unborn child.  The inmate, imprisoned as a result of a felony conviction out of New York City, has been transferred to another facility.”

New York penal code section 130.05 subsection 3 (e) says, “committed to the care and custody or supervision of the state department of corrections and community supervision or a hospital, as such term is defined in subdivision two of section four hundred of the correction law, and the actor is an employee who knows or reasonably should know that such person is committed to the care and custody or supervision of such department or hospital.”

As previously reported by IBTimes, earlier in February, Nancy Gonzalez, a New York City prison guard, was charged with rape after she allegedly became pregnant by Ronell Wilson, a convicted cop-killer.

    I HAVE NEVER UNDERSTOOD WHY FEMALE GUARDS ARE ALLOWED TO WORK IN MALE PRISON-UNITS. IF THE GOAL IS TO PUNISH INMATES, WHY PROVIDE “EYE CANDY?” MALE PRISONS NEED MALE GUARDS, IN ORDER TO REDUCE UNAPPROVED SEXUAL BEHAVIOR.
