    Female Prison Guards Often Behind Sex Misconduct

    Monday , March 15, 2010

    HELENA, Mont. —
    Inmate Michael Murphy usually started by seeking a small favor. That would often lead to a kiss or love letters. And in at least five cases, he convinced female prison employees to have sex with him or do other illegal favors.

    In each of those cases, the female corrections employees were caught, shamed and forced out of a job, according to documents detailing an investigation by Montana prison officials and obtained by The Associated Press after an open-records lawsuit.

    The female officers described Murphy as the aggressor, even as the predator. But that makes no difference in either state or federal penitentiaries, where prison employees — male or female — are the violators if they have sex with inmates.

    A Justice Department study shows that cases like Murphy's are common: Female staff are more often implicated than their male counterparts in prison sexual misconduct. While many cases could be considered consensual, incarceration experts and female prison guards say the problem is much more complicated.

    In some cases, the women reported that they couldn't say no to the inmate out of fear, or were afraid to go to a co-worker out of shame at what had happened. One small mistake often led to something else.

    Experts say there is a culture of silence in the prisons that makes it difficult for female guards to come forward with problems before they spin out of control.

    Documents detailing the state investigation into Murphy's liaisons show he persuaded at least five Montana female prison employees to break the rules over several years. He even convinced his therapist to have sex with him, and was able to arrange one-on-one meetings with her even though prison officials knew of his past history with female workers.

    Cover-up charges were filed against one of the female prison workers. Murphy, 36, faced no charges. He is serving time for theft, forgery and other charges.

    No sexual assault charges were filed at the time against the women due to lack of evidence, according to the documents. But in letters to newspapers and in a request to the ACLU of Montana, Murphy wrote that he had been sexually assaulted by some of the women. Prison officials would not allow him to be interviewed for this story.

    The confidential and lengthy internal investigation tells a complicated tale about how an inmate manipulated prison staff.

    The therapist, for instance, told internal investigators that she knew she had been manipulated and compromised. She said she allowed Murphy to kiss her one day in her office and the relationship spiraled out of control from there.

    The man who once ran New York City's corrections department has little sympathy for female prison workers who see themselves as victimized in these cases.

    Martin Horn, now a professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, said female workers who have sex with inmates are often treated less harshly by officials than male worker who do the same.

    "As long as we have a double standard we are going to see these kind of behaviors," Horn said. "It is a very slippery slope we go down if we say we are not going to hold female officers to the same standard."

    A 2007 U.S. Department of Justice study analyzing the prevalence of sexual assault in state and federal prisons found that 58 percent of staff perpetrators of sexual misconduct were female.

    One expert on the issue says the "culture of silence" in prisons makes it tough on the female workers.

    "Even if the staff did small favors, they should have felt free enough to communicate with their superiors about the fact that they were by being blackmailed by the inmate," said Brenda Smith, a law professor at American University who has studied prison rape issues.

    Montana corrections officials said they have cases dating back to 2003 where two female workers at the state prison in Deer Lodge were disciplined for some sort of undisclosed involvement with Michael Murphy. Murphy rocked the prison again in 2008 when it was learned three more had become involved with him.

    The prison launched a lengthy internal investigation, and Murphy was later transferred to a facility in Glendive.

    Montana State Prison Warden Mike Mahoney said 41 percent of the system's employees are female. He said it is impossible to separate female staff from any particular inmate, even one who has proven skilled at compromising workers.

    He said the prison always stresses to workers not to get involved with inmates in even the smallest way, and to never reveal personal details of any type. The warden said Murphy's case, though, will likely provide lessons to improve the training.

    I never feel sorry for those who make bad decisions. If the woman workers are instructed not to get involved in any manner with the inmates and they did not listen then they deserve what they get.

    I view these women as typical women that want the bad boy. You get what you pay for.:whistling:

    Unless these inmates physically force themselves on the women, they (the women) ain't got nobody to blame but themselves.

    Well if a woman is working as a guard in a male prison then she's probably a bit on the manly side...

    If you're serving a ten year sentence, there is no such thing as an ugly female prison guard. Well before the half way mark they they will all be stunning beauties.

    In Ohio it happens a lot more than the state will admit. I've seen women loose everything to be the woman of some scum of the earth because the inmate is such a good con and they can sense the women will low self esteem to victimize.

    According to the article and what little I can glean from my cousin the inmates work angles until the gaurd does something the're not supposed to. Once the first action is done the inmate simply blackmails the guards until they get what they want, usually in an escalating fashion.

    So, one stick of gum turns into something biger and so on until the inmate has enough dirt on the gaurd to force their hand through the threat of job loss or criminal prosecution.

    It's one of those things where the smallest little infraction (on the gaurd's part) can lead to (eventually) the guard providing services like sex or smuggling because they don't see a way out of the situation.

    It's sad when it happens because it's avoidable but, you have to have some empathy for a person who feels their options are so limited they'd rather provide an inmate with sex than get caught for the little thing that started to spiral.

    My cousin works for Texas Department of Corrections, he's said it happens often enough to be a fairly constant topic at work.

    Remeber, cons have 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to come up with schemes to pass the time and make their jailers miserable or profit from the jailer's indiscretions. Even (especially?) when those indiscretions are committed in good faith with no malice aforethought.

    I doubt this guard (or many of them) was complicit in the end result as much as trying to keep the whole thing from exploding and, seeing a lack of options, going along with it to save her own skin/job.

    Yes, but they're very rare and I see a lot more of them from a lot more prisons than most people.

    No sir, I do not.

    And don't.

    They chose their job, they chose do do whatever it was that got them in the jam they're in........no one else. Now I'm supposed to feel "empathy" for them, because they were stupid or believe they're "ugly"?




    They can take a hike, a loooong hike.

    There is a jail officer at my local klink that would have every male GTer humping her leg within minutes. I hear she used to be a stripper before she changed carers. I can believe it.
