Authorities say a female correctional officer has been charged with having sex with a male inmate at a maximum-security state prison in the Hudson Valley.

State police say 39-year-old Tyshinia Love Brewster of Poughkeepsie was arrested at her home Wednesday and charged with rape and official misconduct.

Officials say Brewster had been involved in a sexual relationship with an inmate at Downstate Correctional Facility in Fishkill, where she has worked for the past 7 1/2 years. Police say the two would meet during her shift assignment in the cell block where the inmate was housed.

Authorities say the inmate has been transferred to another prison.

Police say Brewster is about six months pregnant with the inmate's child.

She's free on her own recognizance. It couldn't be determined if she had a lawyer.
