“Depraved” Prison Guard Sentenced for Having Sex with Inmate While Other Prisoners Watched


A California corrections officer convicted of having sex with an inmate in full view of other prisoners will spend 210 days in jail, then serve two years of probation.

Tina Gonzalez, 27, admitted to the crimes and her attorney, Martin Taleisnik, claimed her “marriage was falling apart” when she committed the acts.

“It was never her intention to bring any harm or danger to the employees in the jail or anyone else in the jail,” said Taleisnik.

In addition to sex, Gonzalez reportedly gave the inmate razor blades and a cell phone. She also tipped him off of cell searches.

“At times, communicated sensitive information to the inmate about individuals that were entering the inmate’s pod as well as times when the pod would be searched,” said prosecutor Kaitlin Drake.

“Cutting a hole in your pants to make it easier to have sex with an inmate and having intercourse in full view of 11 other inmates is something only a depraved mind could come up with,” Fresno County assistant sheriff Steve McComas said.

“The fact that she continually calls, has sexually explicit conversations with the inmate in question, and even boasts about the crimes she carried out shows that she’s incapable of owning up to her mistakes and will undoubtedly continue in the future,” McComas added.
