NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - A prison officer at Connecticut’s women’s prison in Niantic has been charged with sexual assault, accused of having a sexual relationship with an inmate.

Jeff Bromley was arraigned Thursday in New London Superior Court and is free on $15,000 bond. He’s on administrative leave.

His lawyer did not immediately return a call early Friday seeking comment.

Authorities say the 46-year-old Bromley bought food and small gifts for the inmate, took photographs of her and had sex with her in a prison basement and laundry room.

Authorities say state police were called to the Janet S. York Correctional Institution on Oct. 31, 2014, after the inmate said she had sex with three correction officers and worried she was pregnant. Pregnancy tests were negative.

Bromley is the only person charged. State police said an investigation continues.
