Syracuse, NY – A jail nurse has been charged with performing oral sex on a prisoner, according to The Huffington Post.
Not only does Beth A. Ours stand accused of performing the sex act on the unidentified prisoner, she allegedly smoked crack with the man as well. If she’s found guilty of the charges, the nurse could land behind bars for up to four years.
According to The Post-Standard, the relationship between Ours and the inmate started out as friendly gestures and smiles. Before long the nurse was allegedly rubbing the prisoner’s body and requesting kisses.
Once their relationship grew into something a bit more intimate, the jail nurse reportedly performed regular sex acts on the inmate until he was released from prison.
The man claims his relationship with the nurse continued once he was a free man. Ours gave the prisoner her phone number and encouraged him to stop by from time-to-time. The man claims he paid her a visit on more than one occasion. He also alleges they smoked crack “a few times” at her house.
“For some reason Beth was very comfortable with our relationship and did not seem to care if other people knew and this is why she was telling people about us,” the inmate said.
The JD Journal explains that, since the inmate is essentially incapable of consenting to sex with a prison employee, the nurse could face up to four years in prison for her actions.
Records indicate that Ours is an employee of Correctional Medical Care Inc., which provides services to Hillbrook juvenile detention facility, the Onondaga County Correctional Facility, and the Justice Center in Pennsylvania.
Beth A. Ours and her employer have refused to comment on the situation. She is reportedly due back in court this week.
