Life in Vienna's Favoriten Prison must be very different than other European prisons, with the recent emergence of a series of explosive revelations. Eva K. (40) (all names have been changed to protect privacy) is a prison nurse with two children, each allegedly conceived with two different men -- both of whom were prisoners under her care at the time.
The secret love affair emerged this week when one of the prisoners was again remanded into custody. The nurse tried to cover up the embarrassing secret, but was ratted out by colleagues with long memories. Executive Director Christian Timm condemned her behaviour, decrying it as "very unprofessional." Further disciplinary action is pending, commencing with a 500 Euro fine.
This is not the first case of its kind, as The Local has learned. In March, prison guard Karin P. (32) was caught having an affair with convicted robber Mark A. (33). She was forced to resign, and the prisoner was transferred to another facility.
