Jury finds correction nurse guilty of sexual intercourse without consent with inmate
BUTTE, Mont. -

It took an Anaconda jury just 4 hours to find Tisha Ann Brunell guilty of 2 counts of sexual intercourse without consent, along with dozens of other charges.

Brunell is a former corrections nurse accused of having sex with an inmate.

Court records indicate she confessed to kissing the inmate and talking more than 50 times on the phone to him.

During the trial, attorneys played 8 hours of recorded calls between Brunell and the inmate.
