Suing: Jang-Li Delgado-Galban, filed notice that he intends to sue, claiming damages related to Brett Robinson and Jill Curry having sex with him repeatedly last year, reports The Oregonian

An Oregon county is facing a lawsuit from the inmate two jail workers admit they had sex with.

The inmate, Jang-Li Delgado-Galban, filed notice that he intends to sue, claiming damages related to Brett Robinson and Jill Curry having sex with him repeatedly last year, reports The Oregonian.

Both former jail workers pleaded guilty to charges related to sexual misconduct, and Curry was sentenced in March to four years in jail. Robinson is in jail until her June 2 sentencing.

Delgado-Galban, 25, is a gang member and sex offender currently in state prison for attempted second-degree assault, among other convictions.

Court records show he passed a sexually explicit note to a nurse last year and forcefully kissed a female inmate.

The inmate's name was first made public by KPTV

The Washington County prosecutor said that when a sheriff’s deputy went to lunch, jail services technician Jill Curry was alone in the maximum-security unit.

The prosecution alleged she pressed a button to unlock the inmate’s cell and then met him in the closet on 13 occasions.

Curry pleaded guilty in February to custodial sexual misconduct and other charges.

A probation officer who did a pre-sentence investigation recommended a two-year sentence.

But Judge Charles Bailey accepted the recommendation from prosecutors for a four-year term.

The judge rejected the claim that the 25-year-old inmate seduced Curry.

Robinson, who worked in a maximum security control room known as 'the bubble', struck up a relationship with Delgado-Galban in a nearby cell. The two would talk using an intercom when Robinson's manager left the room.

Guilty: Both Jill Curry and Brett Robinson pleaded guilty to having sex with Delgado-Galban

Robinson tried to use an insanity plea but failed to convince a judge last month. She subsequently pleaded guilty and will be sentenced in June

According to a psychologist's report on Robinson, she felt flattered by the compliments she got from the inmate and started to 'open up to him' early last year.Then, in March, the inmate asked for a kiss on his birthday.

When her manager went to lunch, Robinson released the inmate from his cell and brought him into the bubble.

She thought it strange that he brought a blanket with him from the cell, the report said.

'He kissed me so passionately, I was taken aback.

'I asked about the blanket.

'He said ''I was hoping we could go farther''.

'Then he was saying ''we don't have time to discuss this'', so I had sex with him.'

They continued having sexual encounters, the report said, and Robinson wrote the inmate a love letter that began with 'Hi Baby'. 

New protocol: In the wake of the scandal, the Washington County Jail has added surveillance cameras and beefed up security throughout the facility to prevent anything like this from happening again

The letter said: 'I am hoping this letter will better convey the love I feel deep inside for you. ... You are a constant presence in my thoughts, fantasies and dreams, and I feel this pervasive emptiness without you by my side. It makes it hard to go about my normal daily activities when all I do is miss you. You are my everything, Baby – I could not envision my life without you in it.'

However the relationship began to sour when Robinson started hearing about the abusive conduct of the inmate elsewhere in the prison.

He had passed a sexually explicit note to a nurse and also pushed a female prisoner against a wall and kissed her.

The psychologist noted that Robinson was delusional about the man. 

However, a judge last month rejected her request to use an insanity defense and Robinson has since pleaded guilty.

Robinson is to be sentenced June 2.
