A viral video has caused the resignation of a prison officer after a video of her kissing a Scottish prison inmate went viral.
Kevin Hogg, an inmate at HMP Addiewell in West Lothian, Scotland, secretly set up a camera and kissed the warder when she entered his cell.
According to the Daily Record, the guard was unaware she was being filmed and resigned after the hidden camera footage was revealed.
Hogg was serving three years for traffic offences. He was reportedly released from prison last month.
Prison officials have requested that police investigate the footage, which is believed to have been shot several weeks ago.
According to sources, the guard, who is thought to have quit her job last week, felt “intimidated and pressured” into the situation.
According to one insider as reported by The Sun: “She was under a lot of pressure to do it… She resigned last week after the video went viral, and her career is over.”
However, another prison source stated: “She would have panicked if this was an unwanted approach, but she didn’t. The video clearly shows that she was not coerced or scared. She is an eager participant.”
“The video was recorded a few weeks ago,” a prison source told the Daily Record.
“At first, it was thought he did it to blackmail her, but the fact that the video has gone viral suggests he did it for bragging rights.”
