Although I tend to avoid the New York Post’s tabloid approach to the news, this Law & Order-ready story seems to call out for a bit of over-the-top flair:
She’s a traitor to every badge.
A Brooklyn prison guard offered herself up for jail-cell trysts with the convicted killer of two NYPD detectives — intentionally getting pregnant so she could provide the death penalty candidate with a baby to give him “some kind of hope,” federal authorities charged yesterday.
Disgraced federal officer Nancy Gonzalez, 29, is carrying the son of coldblooded killer Ronell Wilson — who faces death by lethal injection for the 2003 execution slayings of Detectives James Nemorin and Rodney Andrews, a criminal complaint says.
Court documents said Ms. Gonzalez told authorities she was impregnated in June 2012, during the time she was involved in a relationship with Wilson.
“There was an inmate there that for whatever reason, I took a chance because I was so vulnerable and wanted to be loved and now I am carrying his child,” court papers quote Ms. Gonzalez as telling a second inmate in a December telephone call.
Ms. Gonzalez, who began a relationship with a second inmate in September after ending her affair with Wilson, said she “kind of got sucked into his world” and “felt like, well, why not give him a child as far as giving him some kind of hope,” according to court papers.
Court documents said she had sex with Wilson over the course of three weekends, the sole purpose of which was to impregnate her.
The second inmate had been imprisoned in the Metropolitan Detention Center, but is now serving state time in a New York prison.[…]
According to defense attorney Anthony Ricco, Ms. Gonzalez has had “long-term issues that affected her life and judgment.”
“She’s had a very tragic life and, as the case proceeds, you’ll learn more about it,” he said.
Notwithstanding the alleged spectacle of a female correctional officer so blatantly violating her duties and responsibilities, a pretty sad story all the way around.
