Gonzalez, 26, pleaded no contest to a felony count of sexual activity by a detention facility employee with a consenting confined adult, a felony count of possession of drugs or an alcoholic beverage in a jail facility, and a misdemeanor count of possession of cellular device with intent to deliver to an inmate, Assistant District Attorney Steve Wright confirmed to PEOPLE. McComas elaborated on the allegations in court, saying depraved sex investigation showed not only that Gonzalez had sex with the inmate, but she also gave the inmate razors -- a potential weapon behind bars -- and told him when officers would inspect his cell, reports the Bee.
Gonzalez also allegedly cut a hole in her uniform to make sex with the inmate easier, and her actions were witnessed by 11 other inmates, he said. She continually calls and has sexually explicit conversations with the inmate in question and boasts about the crimes she carried out.
Her defense attorney, Martin Taleisnik, said in court, "It was never her intention to bring any harm or danger to the employees in the jail or anyone else in the jail," according to the Bee. He said Gonzalez took responsibility for her actions, but also said the recent end of her marriage at the time of her actions made Gonzalez vulnerable. Gonzalez faced a maximum of three years and eight months in prison.
The prosecution recommended a sentence of 16 months in prison, with Taleisnik requesting probation. FB Tweet More.
