Another Idaho Juvenile Inmate Alleges Sex Abuse at Nampa IDJC Facility

Posted By on Thu, Feb 6, 2014 at 9:35 AM

As a former staffer of the Idaho Department of Juvenile Correction awaits sentencing for having sexual contact with a male minor at the IDJC's Nampa facility, yet another case has surfaced alleging that a second juvenile inmate was sexually abused by female staffers at the same facility between 2008 and 2010.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that the plaintiff is seeking $1.2 million in damages, according to a tort claim filed against the state.

Julie McCormick was arrested in November 2012 after a 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 McCormick—and that she 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 IDJC staff reportedly witnessed inappropriate behavior between McCormick and a juvenile at the Nampa facility.

And now another plaintiff at the facility, identified only as "John Doe II," says he was forced to participate in fistfights organized by staff and was given money in exchange for sex by at least one staffer. The staffer allegedly threatened that she would revoke the privileges of the plaintiff if he told his friends and family about the sex acts.
