City jail officials are investigating how a detainee was able to receive oral sex from a visitor during an isolated encounter inside a Rikers Island facility.
The steamy visit occurred inside the George Motchan Detention Center earlier this month, a jail insider said.
An unnamed inmate, who is facing robbery charges, can be seen putting his hand down the visitor’s pants, according to a video obtained by the Daily News.
The visitor is then seen putting her face into his lap and performing oral sex. The entire incident lasts several minutes and occurs away from the prying eyes of any officers.
“We take this matter seriously and it will be investigated,” said department spokesman Peter Thorn.
The scandal-scarred jail system has tried to limit contact during visits. But a set of proposed rule changes were watered down after inmate advocates said they would limit contact that detainees could have with their young children.
Jail officials have long argued that much of the contraband being smuggled into city lockups is brought by visitors.
Inmate advocates maintain that no statistics have shown that’s the case. They point out that officers are regularly busted bringing in drugs and weapons.
