Skip to comments.Too sexy for prison: Officer who claims she was hounded out of job, inmates paid her compliments

A prison officer claims she was hounded out of her job by repeated criticism for being 'too sexy' and 'glammed up'.
Amitjo Kajla, 22, is demanding compensation from Justice Secretary Jack Straw.
The 5ft officer told an employment tribunal how colleagues complained that she wore too much make-up and that her clothing was more revealing than the standard-issue uniform, which had to be adapted to her tiny size-four frame.
One young inmate told her: 'Miss, you look sexy', prompting colleagues to warn the officer that her glamorous appearance left her at risk of being dragged into a cell.
Another inmate was overheard telling Miss Kajla: 'I wouldn't mind taking you back to a cell', the tribunal heard.
Miss Kajla claimed she was called a 'stupid little girl' by a senior colleague for putting her security at risk by sitting with prisoners during their 'free association' period.
She added that she was mocked by staff at Brinsford Young Offenders' Institution, in Featherstone, Staffordshire, for carrying a handbag and reprimanded for waving and saying 'hello' to inmates.
The remarks, often made in front of inmates and other staff, made her feel harassed and humiliated, she told the tribunal. 'I couldn't sleep at night because of the bullying and harassment. I lost weight and decided I couldn't take it any longer and resigned.'
Miss Kajla, from Wolverhampton, is claiming compensation for constructive unfair dismissal.

She is a fool for putting herself into prison with hardened criminals.
Uhmm unfair dismissal when she resigned?
Prison guards look pretty lithe over there.
Too sexy for her job ping!
I’m against “discrimination” and all that, but, having a small cute attractive girl working in a prison seems a mis-match. Legally, I can’t say, but realistically, prison guards and other prison workers should intimidate the prisoners, not make them “horny” or violent.
Legally, maybe you can’t only hire big beefy wrestler-type men, but these are the guys who should work in a prison.
Whoever thought it a good idea to put small young women in the same building as violent felons (who have probably not had sex with a woman for a long time) is a fool
Sounds like the prisoners treated her a whole lot better than her fellow guards. Do I sense a little jealousy on their part?
When she gets raped, she’ll sue. The prison can’t win.
I would let her ...
Nah, won’t go there. :)
She reminds me of the cute young things who always seemed to be teaching four and five year olds.
Philippa Maddox, a prison officer who took induction with Miss Kajla, said the 27-year-old did not follow advice regarding hair and make-up and claimed the uniform she wore was “snugly fitted”.
Wonder if he has any pics for judgement?
My wife has a friend from California who bought into the whole BS about it being okay to have women guards in men’s prisons... until one day she was accidentally locked into an area with some violent prisoners. Luckily she got out unharmed and quit her job the next day.
yeah it’s all fun and games til she gets raped.
Hmmm. Looks not guilty from here. Closer study needed.
Pretty, ugly, female, or male....What’s the difference? I’d suspect the standards for sexy are so low for most in prison it does make a bit of difference.
Obviously a scandalously revealing outfit that you’ve pictured. The poor girl will probably be dealt with very harshly by her local Sharia court!
Jealous? Are you a fool? The men in there are HARDENED CRINMINALS. She acted like she was at a meet and greet church social. If a riot happened with her in there, they would pass her around like a bottle of cheap whiskey.
