He did it all for the nookie! Police in the state of Washington say that a male prison guard is accused of giving a female inmate homemade chocolate chip cookies in exchange for sexual favors.
According to a police affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun, a 22-year-old woman, identified by the initials “C.D.” recently came forward to law enforcement officials in January and told them that in May 2012 she “willingly” showed 58-year-old Abner Canda — a guard at that Snohomish County Jail in Everett, Washington — her breasts “for some food.”
After being released from the jail, she returned in October of that same year and had another illicit encounter with Canda in mid-November:
Canda, the inmate said, came to her room and “kissed me and touched my breasts and also put his hand down my pants and placed his finger inside of [my vagina],” according to the Superior Court affidavit. On a subsequent occasion, Canda performed oral sex on “C.D.”
The inmate told police that, “in exchange for the aforementioned sexual favors, Defendant gave her homemade chocolate chip cookies.”
“C.D.” said that she decided to tell investigators about her encounters with Canda because she felt “guilty for doing what I did,” adding that, “I’m ashamed for my actions that’s why I’m saying something.”
Investigators also spoke with other female inmates, two of whom told them that they too had sexual contact with Canda, who was married and had been working as a corrections officer since 2007. One of the inmates even told investigators that she was “dating” Canda.
Canda is facing felony custodial sexual misconduct charges for his alleged sexual encounters with “C.D.” and has been on paid administrative leave since January.
