Sex like this has got to be illegal.

A correction officer said he spotted a Maine inmate crawling in the county jail's corridors after apparently sneaking to the women's block for a romantic meetup on March 10.

Arien L’Italien, 23, of Biddeford, slipped from his maximum-security Cumberland County Jail unit by finagling with the lock around 11:50 p.m., according to a statement from the county sheriff's department. After freeing himself from the cell, he moseyed over to Karla Wilson's place in the pen.

While in her quarters, the two had sex. The guard saw L'Italien as he tried to crawl back to his cell at 12:50 a.m.

Watchmen check prisoners' cells every 15 minutes, but L'Italien arranged his bunk to make it look like someone was tucked in, My Fox Boston reported.

The lovers evidently arranged their rendezvous by communicating through the jail's ventilation system, according to the sheriff's office.

L'Italien is on trial for attempted murder of a federal officer and possession of a firearm. Wilson, 25, has been charged with four counts of sexual assault and two counts of aggravated assault.

The lapse in security has prompted penal authorities to vow a full-scale reappraisal of the facilities and procedures, the Kennebec Journal reported.

In the embarrassing aftermath of the breach, prison officials transferred L'Italien to the super maximum security unit and moved Wilson to the intake unit, according to My Fox Boston.
