Corrections officer Sukhpreet Singh became a prisoner of love after falling for alleged bandit Tatum Ogden — an inmate at the Toronto South Detention Centre where she worked.

Now, she’s just a prisoner who’s roughly eight to 10 weeks pregnant with her co-accused’s unborn baby, sources told the Toronto Sun.

The suspended jail guard is behind bars at the Vanier Centre for Women in Milton.

Singh is accused of two counts of robbery for allegedly using her mom’s black Jeep Wrangler to act as Ogden’s getaway driver in an armed holdup at a Brampton subway shop on March 13 and a violent heist at a Huntsville business on March 16.

Suspended Toronto jail guard Sukhpreet Singh, 24, faces charges for allegedly acting as her 32-year-old boyfriend Tatum Ogden’s getaway driver during robberies.

Singh, who was working as an exotic dancer, lost her bid for freedom in March.

Justice Joseph Bovard denied her bail at College Park saying the Crown’s case against her wasn’t “overwhelming, but was close to it.” There was no publication ban to the proceedings.

Singh’s lawyer, Marianne  Salih, said she’ll likely appeal the bail decision to a higher court.

“Nothing has been set in stone,” Salih said. “In light of the seriousness of the charges, I don’t think I should comment further on her case.”

Ogden befriended the 24-year-old beauty while serving time last year, said Bovard. She reported to her superiors that Ogden was calling her cellphone.

She was suspended from duty last fall for fraternizing with the career criminal, who has a lengthy record and five firearms prohibitions. She’s grieving that suspension.

Ogden, 32, is charged with a dozen robberies — including a break-in at Singh’s father’s Tandoori restaurant in Brampton where he allegedly snatched $100 while an unidentified blond kept watch.

He allegedly used a Jeep Wrangler — owned by Singh’s mom — in many of his holdups. However, Singh is only accused of involvement in two robberies.

Singh, a former teenage boxing champion, once aspired to become a cop, enroling in the Police Foundations college course and working several security jobs before starting at Toronto South in October 2017.

She separated last year from her husband — the father of her three-year-old daughter and the son of her boxing coach.
