NY Corrections Officer Caught Making Out With Inmate Immediately Resigns

The Tompkins County District Attorney is determining whether a crime was committed.

Two upstate New York corrections officers discovered something peculiar during a tour of the Tompkins County Jail recently: Another male corrections officer making out with a male inmate.

The cheeky discovery of the two men in a “romantic embrace” led to the unnamed correction officer’s immediate resignation.

“We weren’t going to hesitate or drag our feet on this,” Sheriff Ken Lansing told The Ithaca Voice. “He was out the door in five minutes or less.”

Tompkins County District Attorney Gwen Wilkinson claimed the incident may result in a criminal offence, as prisoners cannot legally give sexual consent. “Under the law, kissing is sex,” she told The New York Daily News.

By all accounts, the corrections officer seems to be a pretty stand-up guy otherwise.

“He was a good corrections officer; we never had any complaints against him,” said Lansing. “He did his job; he was a very caring person and he always volunteered, and did extra things for people … he came here and he worked hard.”
