Former CO Found ‘Not Competent’ For Trial

10/21/11 – The case against a former corrections officer in Waupun, who is accused of smuggling various items inside the institution for a prisoner, has been suspended as the suspect has been found “not competent” to stand trial. Patricia Kok of Fond du Lac is charged with Delivering Illegal Articles to an Inmate. A judge found probable cause as alleged in the criminal complaint and ordered yesterday that Kok be admitted to the Winnebago Mental Health Institute as soon as a room becomes available. The 46-year-old is said to have brought culinary magazines and clothes to the inmate in the Waupun Correctional Institution, where the two worked in the Food Service Area. Kok is also said to have engaged in phone sex with the prisoner and provide him with money to obtain a lawyer to re-open his case. Kok reportedly told investigators that she knew it was wrong but wanted to help him make plans for school when he gets out. If Kok, fails to report to Winnebago when notified, she was ordered to be taken into custody by law enforcement.
