Correctional Officer Charged for Having Sex with Inmate

Correctional Police Officer Charged With Sexual Assault for Having Sex with Inmate at Northern State Prison Over Whom She Had Authority

December 22, 2020

TRENTON –  Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced that a senior correctional police officer at Northern State Prison in Newark has been charged with having sex with an inmate over whom she had authority inside the prison.

Tasheena Majors, 42, of Newark, N.J., was served with a complaint-summons charging her with second-degree sexual assault.  The complaint alleges that between November 2019 and December 2020, Majors had sexual intercourse with a male inmate in Northern State Prison over whom she had supervisory or disciplinary power by virtue of her status as a senior correctional police officer.

The charge is the result of a joint investigation by the New Jersey Department of Corrections Special Investigations Division and the Attorney General’s Office of Public Integrity and Accountability (OPIA).  Deputy Attorney General Adam Gerken is prosecuting the case for the OPIA Corruption Bureau.

Second-degree charges carry a sentence of five to 10 years in state prison and a fine of up to $150,000.  The charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

    1. If this is true her career is “down the drain” over some penis that she could’ve gotten somewhere else besides the prison walls!!!
      DAYUM SHAME!!! SMMFH!!

    2. Truth be told this is been going on for a long time I myself was incarcerated years ago in the Hamden county house of correction in Ludlow Massachusetts during that time there was several officers mail I might add having sex with the female inmates how do I know this because I had sex with two of them not only the jail but the pre-release as well so I’m not surprised if I had good sense I would’ve sued the jail and the individuals because when you are under somebody’s custody they are not supposed to take it vantage of you and that’s basically what happened

    3. This is disgusting she is supposed to be setting an example and she threw her whole career way over an inmate!!!!! what is this world coming to this is a total disgrace they need to lock her up forever and teach her and everybody else that has authority a lesson!!!!

      • This is the problem and why inmates don’t listen. the authority figure is doing such things thats just sad.But its happening every day I had a family member doing the same thing for atleast 5yrs or more never got caught he clean her office etc..

    4. It is Alleged. I think it is ridiculous how they post her full name and social media pictures. There are so many corruptions in all the states correctional institutions. There are officers in jail behind this very act she is accused of, some are even accused of raping the women. I do not see their information posted. It’s like they are trying to portray her as promiscuous and guilty of the crime that she is “allegedly” accused of.
