Tina Gonzalez Wiki – Tina Gonzalez Bio
Tina Gonzalez is a female California corrections officer with a “depraved mind” who has been jailed for reportedly having sex with an inmate — in full view of 11 other jailbirds.
She even cut a hole in her uniform pants — to make it easier to have sex in Fresno County Jail, her sentencing hearing was told on Tuesday, according to The Fresno Bee.
She is 26 years old.
She was arrested after a Fresno County jail inmate tipped investigators off in 2019 to a sexual relationship between Gonzalez and another inmate. Gonzalez, who worked at the jail from 2016 to 2019, pleaded no contest earlier this year to “sexual activity by a detention facility employee with a consenting confined adult,” the Fresno Bee reports.
Gonzalez also pleaded no contest to having a cellular device with intent to deliver to an inmate, as well as drug or alcohol possession while in a jail facility.
According to court documents, Gonzalez provided the inmate in question with a phone. She also gave him razors, which angered her former boss, Assistant Sheriff Steve McComas. McComas said bringing razors to an inmate is allowing a potential weapon inside the jail.
Gonzalez also snuck alcohol into the jail and reportedly cut a hole in her uniform to make it easier to have sex with the inmate. People.com reports that at least 11 other inmates saw her actions.
“That is something only a depraved mind can come up with,” Gonzales said.
Her former boss called for her to get the maximum sentence of three years and eight months in prison.
But Judge Michael Idiart noted her early plea and lack of criminal history as he sentenced her Tuesday to seven months in the county jail followed by two years of probation.
“I think what you did was terrible, stupid and you have ruined your career,” Idiart told Gonzalez.
“But I also believe that people can redeem themselves and you have the rest of your life to do that. Good luck,” the judge told her.
