A prison guard accused of sex with an inmate has been hit with new charges of making ‘deliveries’ to jail.
But all bodybuilder Melissa Goodwin, 25, could be accused of delivering in recent days is muscle gains.
Goodwin was spotted en route to the gym just days after a magistrate erupted over her and her lawyer failing to show their faces in court.
Goodwin posted to Instagram about ‘going to do some cardio’ last Wednesday – about the same time a court heard further charges were expected to be laid.
Daily Mail Australia can reveal the suspended Corrective Services officer now faces two charges of unlawfully delivering, or ‘attempting to deliver’, to an inmate.

Goodwin was first charged with misconduct in public office and engaging in a relationship with an inmate in May. She is accused of having sexual intercourse with Silverwater jail inmate Corey London on five occasions.
After being granted bail, she pursued an entirely legal relationship with former inmate, Caleb Valeri, although that ended in tears.
At court last Wednesday, neither Goodwin or her lawyer appeared in front of Magistrate Susan Horan, due to a late change of plan.
A Crown prosecutor told the court then that she was appearing on behalf of both the prosecution and the defence as ‘for some reason there was a hope it would be dealt with in (the magistrate’s) chambers’.
Magistrate Horan snapped: ‘That’s not appropriate. It should be done in open court. It ought to be done in the usual fashion.’

After a moment, Magistrate Horan told the court that a solicitor had only emailed in about the change in their appearances late on Tuesday afternoon.
‘Not only should this be done in open court, your solicitor with carriage emailed the registry at 4.48pm yesterday – that’s not acceptable,’ she said.
A second lawyer later apologised to the court, saying the appearance snafu was the result of a ‘late transfer’ of the Goodwin matter to another office.
However, prosecutors also revealed Goodwin was expected to be hit with further charges.
A NSW Police Force spokesman has confirmed those additional charges were laid last week.
The case returns to court on November 4.
