The allegations of a broader, behind-the-scenes sex scandal that created potential security risks are contained in a document Gonzalez’s attorneys prepared before she was sentenced last month to a year in prison.
Nancy Gonzalez pleaded guilty in July to charges of unlawfully having sex with Ronell Wilson in 2012 while working the night shift at a federal jail in Brooklyn. She became pregnant a few months into the affair and had a baby.
The ruling means Ronell Wilson could once again face the death penalty.
Prosecutors said federal correction officer Nancy Gonzalez, 29, was arrested Tuesday morning at her home in Huntington, Long Island.
