Conn. Guard Gets 90 Days, Probation for Sex with Prisoner
On September 1, 2015, Jeff Bromley, 47, a guard at the Janet S. York Correctional Institution in Niantic, Connecticut, pleaded no contest and was sentenced to 90 days in jail on a charge of second-degree unlawful restraint for having a sexual relationship with a female prisoner. According to court documents, Bromley had sex with the unidentified prisoner in the basement and laundry room of her housing unit, took pictures of her with his cell phone, and gave her snacks and small gifts.
Bromley’s plea agreement includes two years of probation following his release and a permanent protective order against any contact with his victim. He will not be allowed to reapply for his job at the prison, and also faces a civil lawsuit. Bromley was placed on administrative leave last year, then fired following his arrest in February 2015. The prisoner stated she had sex with three guards and was worried she might be pregnant. Charges are still pending against the other two guards implicated in the case, Matt Gillette and Kareem Dawson.
