Lesbian sex romps in prison

Posted by on June 15, 2011 0 Comment

Prison staff ran a women’s jail like a Carry On film, enjoying sex with inmates in return for favours, a court heard yesterday.

Russell Thorne, acting governor of Downview Prison, granted a convict gifts of alcohol, make-up and weekend releases to reward her for repeated sexual encounters, a jury was told.

On one occasion he organised a threesome with two prisoners and also watched lesbian shows between inmates in his office, it is claimed.

His colleague, prison officer Simon Dykes, is accused of having sex with four inmates and allowing another to perform a lewd act on him in a jail lavatory.

Prosecutor Ian Acheson told Guildford Crown Court that superficially there might seem to be a ‘funny side’ to the case.

‘You might visualise a real-life version of what, 20 to 30 years ago, the Carry On team may have suggested as “Carry On Inside”,’ with Sid James playing the role of the prison officer and Barbara Windsor in a short skirt perched on his desk,’ he said.

‘There is temptation to view this as good clean British fun but set that to one side’

Mr Acheson said that although each of the sexual encounters was consensual, the two men had abused their positions of trust, particularly in the case of one woman who was described as ‘mentally vulnerable’.

The prosecutor told the jury that Thorne, 41, and Dykes, 45, were at the centre of a ‘culture of corruption’ within the prison.

He said: ‘They were offering preferential treatment to prisoners for sex.’

Thorne began a sexual relationship with a prisoner shortly after she arrived at the prison near Sutton, Surrey, in July 2006, the court heard.

‘She came to get to know him and went to his office in B wing.

This was the first occasion when there was kissing between the two and she was moved onto the desk,’ said Mr Acheso. Agencies
