A Rikers Island corrections officer has been charged with rape and conspiring to smuggle contraband after admitting to falling in love with an inmate – only to find out she was being used to bring him drugs, the New York Daily News reports.

The incident came to light over the weekend when a drug-sniffing Department of Investigations dog alerted the police about probationary corrections officer, Nicole Bartley. The 30-year-old confessed she fell for an inmate stationed at George R. Vierno Center jail in New York City.

After having sex with him sometime towards the end of January, Bartley said he persuaded her to bring him marijuana. Following a search at her Bronx home over the weekend, police found 70 grams of the drug.

Via the NY Daily News:

“I, Nicole, being a fool had my guard down to this man I thought (I) was falling in love with,” she said, according to the criminal complaint.

She admitted that she slept with the inmate and later agreed pick up some marijuana for him, according to the complaint.

“I was in love with him. He used me and played me for a fool. I had sex with him on one occasion in the jail a few days before Jan. 30,” she said. “I used a condom. It was in the closet in the morning when everyone else was locked in. It only lasted five minutes.”

Because inmates cannot consent to sex in prison, Bartley has been charged with third-degree rape, as well as promoting contraband. She is the second officer to be arrested in four days for allegedly trying to bring narcotics into the complex, and the 26th corrections staffer to be arrested since the DOI launched its probe to uncover corruption at the jail in 2014, says the report.

DOI Commissioner Mark Peters told reporters Bartley will be suspended. She was released on a $1,000 bond over the weekend.

If found guilty, Bartley could face up to four years in jail.
