A PRISON officer has been found guilty of having sex with an inmate at a women’s jail.

Iain Cocks, of Pinfold Gardens, Cudworth had a relationship which lasted for almost two years with the prisoner at HMP New Hall, Flockton, near Wakefield.

A jury at Leeds Crown Court convicted the 51-year-old whose wife also worked as a prison officer at the same jail of two counts of misconduct in a public office and one of sexual assault carried out on another inmate.

The Crown Prosecution Service said the offending took place between June 2015 and May 2017.

Cocks, who was remanded in custody following the jury’s decision on Tuesday, will be sentenced by Judge Simon Phillips on Thursday.
