Female prisoner


The prisoner is el preso. La presa is the prey (and a lot more). What is the correct usage for a female prisoner?

Presa is correct: preso, presa, presos, presas.

Besides meaning prey, presa is also a dam -the wall, specifically- though represa -the whole thing, including el embalse (the reservoir)- is also used.
