Eighteen female guards fired or quit over alleged sex romps with inmates, three sentenced to prison

Eighteen female guards were either fired or quit HMP Berwyn, Britain’s largest and cushiest male prison after they were caught hooking up with inmates in wild sex romps that give new meaning to “prisoners with benefits,” according to UK reports.

Three women have been sentenced to prison over steamy affairs with criminals according to records obtained by the Mirror. Those include Jennifer Gavan, 27, Ayshea Gunn, 27, and Emily Watson, 26, who have all been jailed within the last three years for having relationships with prisoners at the super-prison, which houses Category C adult male offenders.

Gavin, who was a guard, accepted money given to her to smuggle a phone to a robber in the prison. That phone was later used to facilitate the exchange of intimate pics of one another, according to the Mirror. She pleaded guilty to misconduct and was sentenced to eight months of incarceration last year.

Watson, who was also a guard, reportedly hooked up with a drug dealer who was serving a sentence for causing death by dangerous driving. She reportedly performed a sex act on the inmate twice and had sex with him once in his cell, Yahoo! News reported.


Probation Officer Ayshea Gunn was involved with an armed robber. They reportedly swapped “highly sexualized” pics and videos according to the Mirror. She also smuggled in a pair of underwear for the prisoner inside her bra, Yahoo! News reported.

Both Watson and Gunn were sentenced to a year in prison for their actions.

According to the Mirror, the chair of the Prison Officers’ Association, Mark Fairhurst, claims that the hookups were due to hiring the “wrong kind of women.”

“Staff being recruited don’t have face-to-face interviews,” Fairhurst remarked and added, “It’s all done on Zoom.”

“A lot of people getting these jobs don’t have enough life experience and are susceptible to conditioning from prisoners,” he asserted.

In response to the problem, the HM Prison Service has previously announced that it would enhance training and filter out guards “who undermine our exemplary service,” the BBC reported.

The agency also said it would not “tolerate those few officers who think they are above the law.”

“That’s why our newly bolstered Counter Corruption Team is working around the clock to root out and clamp down on those who undermine our exemplary service with their dangerous behavior and ensure they face the strongest possible consequences for their crimes,” the HM Prison Service claimed, according to the BBC.

Thirty-one female officers in England and Wales have been fired for inappropriate interactions since 2019, the Mirror reported.

Over 500 staff members at the prison have reportedly undergone anti-corruption training over the last 18 months.

The prison came into being in 2017. It has a capacity of 2,000 inmates. It has no bars on the windows and inmates are allowed to have televisions, laptops, and phones. The institution has a sports hall, fitness room, and outdoor space for inmates, according to the Daily Mail. Educational programs are also offered to prisoners.
