A guard who worked for the Metropolitan Detention Center in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, was arrested this morning for having an inappropriate sexual relationship with an inmate while she was on duty. The woman, 29-year old Nancy Gonzalez, admitted to having a relationship with the inmate, a convicted murderer of two undercover police officers, and says she is 8 months pregnant with his child.
Gonzalez's admission was reportedly recorded during a conversation she had with her boyfriend, who is currently residing in another prison.
"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."
The inmate, Ronell Wilson, was originally sentenced to the death penalty for his crimes, but the decision was overturned after an appeal and he is awaiting a retrial. At least three other inmates witnessed the inappropriate conduct, one of whom has said that Gonzalez came to him for advice on how to handle things if she got caught, adding that she would get "15 years" if the relationship was found out.
Gonzalez is scheduled to be arraigned later today in a Brooklyn court.
