Former guard accused of sex misconduct with inmate

Posted: Updated:

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois woman is accused of sexual misconduct with a male inmate while she worked at a substance abuse treatment lockup.

The Belleville News-Democrat (http://bit.ly/W0nvf9 ) reports that 33-year-old Victoria Castillo Wilken of Belleville is charged with five counts of custodial sexual misconduct and one count of official misconduct.

Authorities say Wilken was working at the minimum-security Southwestern Illinois Correction Center in Washington Park when she engaged in sexual relations with the inmate between March and mid-May. The newspaper says her employment ended on June 4.

The correctional center has roughly 700 male inmates.

Online court records don't show whether Wilken has an attorney. She does not have a listed home telephone number.
