Corrections officer busted for trading cookies for sexual favors

Cookie for NookieA “cookie for nookie scheme” is how The Smoking Gun headlines the story of a corrections officer who got his way with a 22-year-old female inmate in exchange for homemade chocolate chip cookies.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Abner Canda — a 58-year-old guard at the county jail in Everett, Washington — engaged in several sexual interations with the inmate, who is only identified by the initials ‘C.D.’

The woman told investigators that, ‘I showed him my breasts, willingly for some food’ last May. After being released from the jail, she returned to the lockup in October and soon had another illicit encounter with the married Canda, who began working as a corrections officer in 2007.

Canda was charged with custodial sexual misconduct, a felony, for his alleged sexual encounters with ‘C.D. and has been on paid administrative leave since January.

According to the inmate’s sworn testimony, Canda approached her in mid-November and “kissed me and touched my breasts and also put his hand down my pants and placed his finger inside of [my vagina].” On a subsequent occasion, Canda performed oral sex on her.

“C.D.”’s claims prompted detectives to interview other female inmates, “at least two of whom suggested that they … had sexual contact” with Canda. One of the women “claimed that she had been … ‘dating’ Defendant while an inmate.”

The story does not clarify whether cookies were used as barter in the other sexual encounters, and “C.D.”’s affidavit does not say whether the cookies were good and/or worth the services rendered in exchange.

“C.D.” did admit to feeling “guilty for doing what I did,” adding that, “I’m ashamed for my actions that’s why I’m saying something.”
