Bond Lowered For IDJC Supervisor Accused of Lewd Conduct

  • Canyon County Jail
  • Julie McCormick, 31, is charged with having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old IDJC inmate.

A former supervisor at the Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections' Nampa lockup stood before a judge Friday and said she was not guilty of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old inmate.

The 15-year-old male said he suffered emotional and personal distress as a result of "statutory rape, lewd, and lascivious conduct, sexual battery and neglect" when he had a sexual relationship with 31-year-old Julie McCormick in July of this year, and that McCormick has the victim's initials tattooed on the side of her neck.

McCormick was arrested nearly five months after a group of IDJC employees filed suit against the State of idaho and nearly seven months after IDOC staff reportedly witnessed inappropriate behavior between McCormick and a juvenile at the Nampa facility.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that Judge Gregory Culet lowered McCormick's bond on Friday from $200,000 to $75,000. If she posts bond, McCormick must wear a GPS device and stay within an area pre-detrmined by pre-trial release services.

If convicted, McCormick faces the possibility of life in prison.

McCormick is back in court on Feb. 25 for a pre-trial hearing, and her jury trial is slated to begin March 12.
