 2 Wisconsin Female Guards Accused of Inmate Sex Assault

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) -- Two female prison guards who allegedly had consensual sex with a male inmate are charged with sexual assault.

 A Kenosha News report says the women are both charged with second-degree sexual assault by correctional staff.

Thirty-three-year-old Lisa M. Hawkins of Salem is also charged with obstructing officers, and 40-year-old Karina Herrera of Kenosha faces an additional charge of delivering illegal articles to an inmate. Prosecutors say Herrera gave a cellphone to an inmate, and a later review of the phone found images of the two involved in sexual activity.

 The criminal complaint says there's also video of Hawkins sexually involved with him. Hawkins's defense attorney, Christopher Rose, says the case is based on circumstantial evidence, and his client will plead not guilty. Herrera's attorney did not immediately return a message.
