Police: Gowanda Correctional cook was having sex with inmates

GOWANDA, N.Y. – A woman who served as a civilian cook at Gowanda Correctional Facility has been charged with 3rd degree rape and official misconduct.

State Police say 29-year-old Jessica Fries of South Dayton was having inappropriate sexual relations with inmates while employed by Gowanda Correctional Facility.

Police obtained the information from an anonymous letter written by an inmate to the NYS Department of Corrections. The letter prompted a three-month joint investigation between State Police and the Department of Corrections Inspector General’s office.

Fries was arrested at her home and released by State Police. She is to appear in Collins Town Court.
