Ayshea Gunn 27, a prison official has been jailed for twelve months for having a four months fling with a dangerous inmate at Britain’s biggest men’s jail.
She was jailed tuesday, after numerous phone calls, some sexually explicit, were found between her and prisoner Khuram Razaq, 29.
Mr Razaq was an inmate at Berwyn Prison, Wrexham, serving 12 years for conspiracy to rob.
Mold Crown Court heard that there were snaps of the pair kissing and hugging in Ms Gunn’s bedroom and that she had smuggled in a pair of knickers for him inside her bra.
Prosecuting barrister Simon Mills said Ms Gunn had been a probation officer at the 1,200 inmate prison since it opened in February 2017 – and had been trained in security awareness and corruption prevention.
She also had “conditioning” training – making officers aware of the risk of prisoners trying to compliment and later exploit them.
Mr Mills said that Gunns was not subtle about her ‘inapproriate relationship with the prisoner, and would often spend long hours with Mr Razaq and went in his cell for long periods.
The prosecutor said Mr Razaq had added the name of a woman purporting to be a Keeley Mason and by November had called her 913 times for many, many hours.
They were listened to and Ms Gunn’s voice was recognised.
