NEW YORK (CNN) - A federal correctional officer in New York is on the other side of the law after being arrested.

She's accused of having sex with inmates while on the job and prosecutors say one of them got her pregnant.

Wiping tears from her eyes, federal correctional officer Nancy Gonzalez tried hiding her face, but the bulge under her coat is the real story.

Prosecutors say that when she should have been guarding a high-profile inmate at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Brooklyn, she was having sex with him and is now pregnant.

Sources said that the inmate is cop killer Ronell Wilson, referred to as "R" in the criminal complaint.

Gonzalez's lawyer, Anthony Ricco, said it's a complicated case.

"People find love in the strangest places, and people get together in the most difficult circumstances. We live in a society where these events happen. These types of cases are unusual, but they're not uncommon," said Ricco.

Wilson was convicted of executing two NYPD detectives, James Nemorin and Rodney Andrews, on Staten Island during a gun buy-and-bust in 2003.

According to Gonzalez's criminal complaint, she also had a sexual relationship with another inmate, and, in a phone conversation recorded by authorities told that man about the sex with Wilson.

"There was an inmate there that for whatever reason, I took a chance because I was so vulnerable and wanted to be loved, and now, I am carrying his child," Gonzalez said on the recording.

Prosecutors said they also have video of the two entering an empty room several times. They checked surveillance tapes after other inmates told authorities what was going on.

"She's really distraught. She's in the worst place that a woman could be eight months pregnant," said Ricco.

While this is happening, Wilson is appealing his death sentence for killing the two detectives. His lawyers said his IQ is too low for him to be put to death.

If Gonzalez is convicted of having sex with an inmate, she faces up to 15 years behinds bars.
