(Scroll down for video) A female captain at the Rikers Island jail in New York, lost her job and large pension after she was caught kissing an inmate, according to the Department of Corrections.

Captain Shantay Dash was recently seen on video speaking with a male prison inmate before leaning in to get a kiss.

After the kiss, the two can see giving each other a high five. The prisoner recorded the illicit relationship with a smuggled cell phone.

When the video was made public, Dash resigned. She earned $80,000 a year, and was set to receive a large pension.

Earlier this year, Dash was arrested for smuggling a tattoo gun into Rikers Island and gave it to an inmate who wanted to remove a tattoo that linked him to a crime.

For some reason, Dash was allowed to continue her work at the jail.
