A CALIFORNIA corrections officer is heading to the big house for using her “depraved mind” when she put on a sex show with an inmate as 11 others watched.
Tina Gonzalez, 26, even slit a hole in her uniform pants for easier sexual access with the male prisoner and supplied him with razors and privileged information while serving time inside the Fresno County Jail.

The disgraced jail guard was sentenced on Tuesday to seven months in the county jail followed by two years of probation, according to the Fresno Bee.
It was far less than her boss hoped she would get – which was the maximum three years and eight months.
“That is something only a depraved mind can come up with,” her former boss Assistant Sheriff Steve McComas told the court.
McComas argued that Gonzalez boasted about the prison hanky-panky citing phone chats with her sex partner inmate after she was caught.
“She took an oath which she betrayed and in doing so endangered her coworkers’ lives,” he said, according to the Fresno Bee.
“But she has shown no remorse.

“She continually calls and has sexually explicit conversations with the inmate in question and boasts about the crimes she carried out.”
Gonzalez didn’t just engage in a sexual affair with the inmate but she also stocked him with razors that are often turned into shivs, and tipped him off when her fellow officers would be inspecting his cell for contraband.
The convicted ex-corrections officer pleaded no contest in April to sexual activity by a detention facility employee with a consenting inmate as well as possession of drugs or alcohol, and supplying a cell phone to an inmate, the publication confirmed.
“It was never her intention to bring any harm or danger to the employees in the jail or anyone else in the jail,” her defense attorney Martin Taleisnik said.

He also claimed her promiscuous prison behavior stemmed from the hurt brought on after her marriage fell apart.
Judge Michael Idiart believed Gonzalez betrayed her oath but hoped she could turn her life around.
“I think what you did was terrible, stupid and you have ruined your career,” the judge said.
“But I also believe that people can redeem themselves and you have the rest of your life to do that. Good luck.”
