NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — A former Connecticut prison nurse who had a sexual relationship with an inmate has been sentenced to two years of probation after pleading guilty to misdemeanor sexual assault.
Dana Gibson, 46, of Montville, accepted a plea deal Tuesday in New London Superior Court. She had been charged with felony sexual assault.
An arrest warrant affidavit says Gibson and the 36-year-old male inmate had about 20 sexual encounters while Gibson worked in the medical unit at the Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center in Norwich from September 2016 to March of this year. The affidavit says they called each other husband and wife.
The inmate has not been identified. State police say he came forward because he didn’t want his jail sentence extended if someone found out.
