Prison Guard is Facing Jail Time for the Minor Offense of Having Sex 'Multiple Times' with a Prisoner She Was Guarding

Source - A female employee at an Iowa prison has been arrested after allegedly having sex with an inmate multiple times over the course of seven months.  

Kayla Bergom, 27, is facing three counts of sexual misconduct for engaging in sexual activity with the unidientified inmate, 29, while she worked at the Tama County Jail.

The fling occured between September 2020 and April 2021, and they had sex in a utility closet on at least one occasion and in the recreation yard at least twice, The Gazette reported. ...

'Federal law makes it illegal for prison guards to have sex with incarcerated people. This is because incarcerated people cannot legally give consent,' according to non-profit think tank Interrogating Justice.

'If a prison guard has sex with an incarcerated person, the guard can face up to 15 years in prison,' it added.

I know the popular thing would be to say that prison is all about punishment. That society has found these men guilty of wrongdoing, and that they deserve to have all the liberties of citizenship taken away from them in order to teach them harsh lessons. Sure, we could sit here and demagogue this issue. Talk about how the victims of their crimes have the right to know that their freedom has been taken away and they are suffering for it. And that's what justice is supposed to be all about it. 

But is it really? Aren't we supposed to be better than that? I mean, this isn't supposed to be some authoritarian, backwards society where our incarcerated live in squalor. Thrown into a pit and forgotten like young Bane in Dark Knight Rises, right? Aren't we enlightened enough to realize that? 

Call me soft on crime, call me what you will. But I believe in a little concept called rehabilitation. I think that we owe it to those convicted - nay, to ourselves - to prepare them to become productive citizens once they've paid their debt to society. And the best way to do that is to expose them to the benefits all free, law abiding Americans are entitled to. And that includes getting to bone hot horndogs like Kayla Bergom. 

Sure, you can give inmates job skills that will help them earn a good living once they're out. You can help them get their GEDs. Maybe even take college courses. That will aid them in transitioning back to the real world. But nothing, and I mean nothing, will assimilate them back into polite society like some crazy utility closet sex. Once you've hiked up a prison matron's skirt and taken her to the summit of Bang Mountain next to the mop bucket, you'll never want to commit another crime. Once you've known the soft touch Corrections Officer Bergom in the prison yard, you'll vow never to look upon the high walls of Tama County Jail again. 

What she did in taking that prison for an express ride on the F-Train not only shouldn't be a crime, she should get an award. Or a government grant, to develop a program where female volunteers will take the D in order to remind these criminal offenders of what they're missing due to their life of crime. I promise you, recidivism will drop. And we'll all be better for it. 

The good news for her though, is that if she does end up doing a lengthy bid in women's prison? There'll be all the male guards to bone any girl could ask for. And all the time in the world to bone them. So best of luck in your new endeavor, CO Bergom.
