NIANTIC — A male guard at Connecticut’s women prison in Niantic has been charged with having an illegal sexual relationship with a female inmate.

The arrest of 43-year-old Matt Gillette of Groton on Friday came two months after another correctional officer at the York Correctional Institution was charged with having sex with a female inmate.

The Day reports that state police charged Gillette with second-degree sexual assault and he posted $15,000 bail.

Fellow correctional officer Jeff Bromley was charged in February with second-degree sexual assault for an alleged illegal sexual relationship with a prisoner. An arrest warrant for Bromley says a 28-year-old inmate made sexual assault allegations against three correctional officers.
