Adrian Keeling QC defends a prison officer who stood guard whilst the prison nurse had sex with a convicted rapist at a top security jail, a court has been told.
 
Karen Cosford exchanged intimate text messages on a smuggled mobile phone during her relationship with lifer Brian McBride, Leeds Crown Court heard.
 
Mrs Cosford, 47, of Normanton, who worked at Wakefield Prison, denies misconduct, claiming McBride raped her and then bribed her to not report it.
 
The prosecution said the married prison worker's actions compromised security.
 
Mrs Cosford is charged along with three other medical centre colleagues at Wakefield Prison with misconduct in a public office.
