A former prison guard accused of having sex with an inmate repeatedly was admonished by a judge for skipping a hearing to work on her physique.
The Daily Mail reported that former Sydney prison guard Melissa Goodwin, 25, is accused of having sexual intercourse with Silverwater jail inmate Corey London on at least five occasions.
A magistrate handed down new charges of unlawfully delivering following her failure to appear in court.
Just days after not showing up in court, Goodwin posted to her social media about working out at the gym.

After the prison guard accused of sex with an inmate failed to show in court last Wednesday, the magistrate remarked: “That’s not appropriate. It should be done in open court. It ought to be done in the usual fashion.”
The guard was also accused of smuggling tobacco, cigarette lighters and chewing gum into the prison.
At the time of her arrest earlier this year, Goodwin was already being investigated for her relationship with Caleb Valeri, a former prison inmate and now ex following his arrest.
In March, Ms Goodwin appeared on the cover of CSNSW’s departmental magazine, the Bulletin, posing with two male officers in uniform for an article entitled, “Pandemic Frontline”.NEWS.COM.AU
According to The Daily Telegraph, Valeri was arrested earlier this year and charged with violently assaulting the former prison guard following accusations she had sex with an inmate.
Goodwin faces no charges in connection to her relationship with Valeri. No allegations suggest the relationship was inappropriate on the former prison guard’s part.
Valeri also faces a number of additional domestic violence charges relating to an alleged assault on a male relative last year.
He allegedly assaulted Goodwin three months after the prison guard was charged with having sex with an inmate. He has pleaded not guilty.

According to The Daily Star, prison guard Goodwin was fired earlier this year after she was charged with having sex with an inmate.
Investigators also got their hands on romantic texts between Valeri and Goodwin, described as “sickening.”
Prison official John Hefferman said at the time that the allegations were “a real kick in the teeth.”
The case is set to return to court on November 4. Goodwin remains out on bail.
