Jury Trial Set For Former Prison Guard Charged With Assault

5/5/17 – A former officer at Fox Lake Correctional Institution charged with sexually assaulting three inmates over a period of several months had an August 14 jury trial added to the calendar yesterday. Alex Andre Wouts of Poy Sippi is facing five felony counts of Second Degree Sexual Assault by Correctional Staff. In 2015, officers were told to conduct an investigation at the institution after allegations were sent to the Dodge County District Attorney’s Office.  Three inmates went into detail about the sexual acts, and a pair of one of the men’s underwear was tested and reportedly contained Wouts’ DNA.  The 33-year-old denied the assaults, stating he would not risk his job and family by doing something like that within the prison system.  If he is found guilty on all counts, Wouts faces up to 90 years in prison.
