NEW YORK — Authorities say a female correctional officer has been charged with having sex with a male inmate at a maximum-security state prison in the Hudson Valley.
State police say 39-year-old Tyshinia Love Brewster of Poughkeepsie was arrested at her home Wednesday and charged with rape and official misconduct.
Officials say Brewster had been involved in a sexual relationship with an inmate at Downstate Correctional Facility in Fishkill, where she has worked for the past 7½ years. Police say the two would meet during her shift assignment in the cell block where the inmate was housed.
