Lauren McIntyre Wiki – Lauren McIntyre Biography
Lauren McIntyre is a female prison guard who is facing charges after she allegedly had a 4-month sexual relationship with an inmate and allowed him to beat up another corrections officer.
MailOnline reports that Lauren McIntyre, 42, had a brief court appearance last week at the Isle of Wight Magistrates Court in the UK, where she confirmed her name, date and birth. She has been accused of abusing the public trust as a prison officer and of misbehaving while maintaining a relationship with a prisoner, as well as allowing her to attack a guard.
While McIntyre worked at HMP’s Isle of Wight Newport Prison between August and December 2018, she allegedly had a sexual relationship with inmate Andrew Roberts. Roberts was sentenced to two life sentences after strangling his girlfriend, Louise L’Homme, and their young daughter, Tia, inside their South Wales home in 2003.
Roberts doused the victims’ bodies with perfume and lotion to mask the odor and then fled his residence. Authorities captured him five days later.
“You committed the depraved and brutal destruction of your own family. The fact that you were having a cocktail of drugs at the time does not excuse what you did, ”a judge told Roberts at the time, according to Wales Online.
McIntyre is also charged with knowing that Roberts had a cell phone and with an imminent attack on his fellow inmate, Samuel Laidler. McIntyre allegedly approved of the attack and did nothing to stop Roberts. He also reportedly gave Laidler’s phone number to Roberts.
McIntyre is also accused of giving Roberts her own number, sending photos of herself, and allowing him to try to put money in her bank account.
McIntyre has been granted bail while she awaits her next court hearing. Check back for updates.
