Stephanie Smithwhite, 40, denied cutting a hole in the trousers of her prison uniform was for a sexual purpose, but the sentencing judge said it was hard to imagine why else it was there.
The judge said she was infatuated with him, as demonstrated by her tattoo of the name Curtis next to a rose.
Hmm, can't have been hard for the authorities to twig what was going on. But why didn't she try the 'I haven't been trained not to screw the inmates' excuse?
He was also known to have started relationships with other prison staff previously, but Smithwhite failed to resist him, despite undergoing training about manipulative and corrupting inmates.
At first she denied having a physical relationship with the Liverpudlian. Police searched her home and found more notes, a copy of his autobiography called Cocky, The Rise And Fall Of Curtis Warren, Mr Doswell said.
They searched the business of one of her relatives and discovered 450 letters, many of which contained sexual fantasies.
They found a white Samsung phone in her car which was only used to ring one number – traced to Frankland Prison, and used by Warren.
I think that's what they call 'bang to rights'...
In interviews with detectives, she was said to be “devastated” but hoped there was an outside chance their relationship could continue.
It'd be funny, if it wasn't so serious...
