Baked goods are the way to many hearts, but beware of the jail guard offering homemade cookies—the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Snohomish County Jail guard Abner Canda has been accused of trading chocolate chip cookies for sex with a female inmate. In January, the 22-year-old woman told law enforcement officials that last May, she willingly exposed her breasts to Canda in exchange for food. She added that back in November, the 58-year-old Canda entered her room and "kissed me and touched my breasts and also put his hand down my pants and placed his finger inside of [my vagina.]"
She says that Canda performed oral sex on her in January, and gave her cookies as compensation for the services provided. An affidavit claims there is surveillance footage showing Canda and the woman entering a cell together on Nov. 19.
The woman, identified only as "C.D.," says she's speaking up now because she's "ashamed" of her actions. Two other female inmates have admitted to having sexual relations with Canda, with one even going as far as to say she was "dating" him.
Canda has been charged with custodial sexual misconduct for his interactions with C.D., not for those with the other inmates. He's been on paid administrative leave since January.
