Ex-Corrections Officer Guilty of Having Sex With Prisoners

by

FOND DU LAC COUNTY, Wis. (WTAQ) - A former officer at Taycheedah Correctional Institution could be sentenced up to 240 years for having sexual contact with prisoners.

39-year-old Jimmie Brown was found guilty last week. He was convicted on 16 counts of second-degree sexual assault of an inmate.

Brown originally faced 21 charges, bu three were dismissed by prosecutors and the jury found Brown not guilty of two more. A sentencing date hasn't been set yet.

He was originally accused of sexually assaulting one inmate at the women's prison in Fond du Lac and having consensual sex with others.

Wisconsin law prohibits sexual contact by a correctional officer with an inmate, regardless of consent.
