(Newser) – The governor of a French prison is likely to wind up behind bars himself for having sex with a female inmate who was used as "bait" in the horrific kidnap-murder of a Jewish man. Florent Goncalves has been suspended as governor of a women's prison west of Paris for his relationship with the 23-year-old con, who is halfway through a 9-year sentence, the Independent reports.

Goncalves, along with a warden, are accused of having sex with the young woman in return for giving her preferential treatment, including assigning her easy jobs and allowing her to use a cell phone. Under questioning, Goncalves, who faces up to 3 years in prison if convicted, confessed to having sex with the woman. He told investigators he had fallen in love with her and hoped to build a life with her after she was released.
