A pregnant New York prison guard is accused of sexually abusing an inmate who murdered two police officers.
CNN reports that Federal Bureau of Prisons officer Nancy Gonzalez, 29, was arrested on suspicion of unlawful sexual abuse on a ward.
She allegedly had sexual relations with two prisoners at the Metropolitan Detention Center in New York City last year.
One of the inmates — reportedly the father of her unborn child — was convicted of killing two police officers in March 2003.
The other complained to police.
She allegedly told the complainant: "I took a chance because I was so vulnerable and wanted to be loved and now I am carrying his child."
In another conversation, she told the complainant she "felt like, well, why not give him a child as far as giving him some kind of hope."
She was released Tuesday on a $150,000 bond after appearing in court.
