Stateville correctional officer found guilty of custodial sexual misconduct

 

JOLIET – Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow announced that an Illinois Department of Corrections officer from Stateville Correctional Center was convicted Wednesday on one count of custodial sexual misconduct following a two-day bench trial.

 

Tracy Terry, 36, of Joliet, faces 2 to 5 years in prison when she is sentenced by Circuit Judge Carla Alessio Goode on Aug. 24. Probation also is a sentencing option.

 

Terry, who held the rank of sergeant, was accused of having sexual contact with a Stateville inmate inside a prison property closet on Aug. 20, 2005.

 

Terry supervised the property closet, which is where personal items belonging to inmates were stored. The inmate had been assigned to work inside the property closet.

 

The sexual contact was recorded on a hidden video camera. Investigators, acting on an informant’s tip about sexual misconduct, installed the camera inside the closet. The tape was played during the trial.

 

Assistant State’s Attorney Brian Barrett prosecuted the case on behalf of the state.
