Ex-corrections officer turns himself in for filing fake report that covered up his sex with inmate

A former corrections officer at a women’s prison who resigned amid a sex scandal surrendered Wednesday afternoon to face charges he fudged an incident report after his affair with an inmate who stabbed her boyfriend in 2012 was discovered, the Daily News has learned. Ruben Illa, 34, turned himself in to state authorities for filing a false report in connection with a Dec. 2, 2015, writeup that said 27-year-old Yekaterina Pusepa was “out of place” at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in Westchester County, where the two were having their affair. Illa is expected to admit he falsely reported Pusepa in an “Inmate Misbehavior Report” of being in the prison’s medical unit without permission. In reality, they had arranged to meet there — it was the unit Illa was assigned to, Pusepa told the Daily News last week.
