A former correctional officer from Wisconsin will soon be trading in his prison guard uniform for an orange jumpsuit after been found guilty of repeatedly sexually abusing three male inmates.
A jury found 34-year-old Alex Andre Wouts guilty of five counts of second-degree sexual assault yesterday after a dramatic three-day trail.
Police first became away of Wouts’ behavior back in December 2015 when they received a tip regarding a sexual assault allegation from inside the Fox Lake Correctional Institution in Fox Lake, Wisconsin.

Officers responded by meeting with the victim, who said he had engaged in sexual activity with Wouts over the course of several months.
The victim said the encounters were usually prearranged and happened on third shift. He told officers that Wouts would perform oral sex on him, as well as on numerous other inmates.
The Daily Citizen reports:
Officers interviewed a different victim who alleged that Wouts asked him to perform oral sex once, telling the inmate he did not have to be afraid. Wouts allegedly told the inmate he’d been doing it for nine to 10 years. Wouts allegedly said he knew all the blind spots and had been called out in the past, but it was his word against the inmates’.
A third inmate told officers that Wouts had sexually assaulted him on numerous occasions, about one to two times a week. The third inmate said that Wouts performed oral sex and that the two had anal sex on one occasion. He estimated there were about 50 to 55 encounters.
Wouts has denied any sexual activity with inmates, laughing at the suggestion and allegedly telling detectives that he was “not gay and would never ruin his reputation or his family to do something like that within the prison system.”
But a pair of underwear recovered from one of the inmates showed a combination of the inmate’s and Wouts’ DNA.
Wouts now faces to 125 years in prison followed by 75 years of supervision and $500,000 in fines. His sentencing is scheduled for July 20.

Now he can sux all the dix until his little heart is content! He was wanting to get caught anyway.
Awww another “straight” man got caught.
Just one of the inmates estimates he got blown 55 times. Wow. Wout was one busy dude. No wonder they call it a blow job.
While the prisoner/guard “rape” scene is a favorite among sex-play actors, the real-life power imbalance between the guards and prisoners sort of makes it impossible for there ever to be any consent.
Put him in there without his weapons and any defenders, and let him taste a bit of his own medicine.
“Taste a bit of his own medicine”… Do you mean that he should lay back and get blown on a regular basis?
Fixed it for you. 🙂
OK.OMG. This guys is not gay. In fact I’ve known him for a number, but have not really had contact the last few years with him. I have stayed at his mom’s house where he was living near Poysippi, WI. Have gone to gay bars with him and waited while he had sex with many local people in parking lots. He has a good side, but he is closeted but not closeted. He is very particular about who outside the gay bars knew of his gayness Very sad.
Sorry i missed something with my post. The first sentence was supposed to be sarcastic. He is in fact gay He tries to hide it at work and other places where it may detrimental.
Sorry something happened with part of the first post. I have known him for quite a while.
That doesn’t mean that a guard should abuse his power and have sex with prisoners. Get over yourself.
Even at best, consent is indeed always doubtful between a guard and an inmate, and it should certainly be punished, but a (possible) sentence of 125 years behind bars?…It is just grotesque. They will destroy the life of a man (and his family’s), who does not seem a danger to society and, overall, it will probably cause more harm than good. Is the US judicial system made for offender reintegration or is it just a brutal force aimed at punishing people (if it is for prevention purpose, it does not seem to work…)? It is also an economical nonsense, as prisons are crowded and it costs a lot to taxpayers.
100% if this was a woman guard she would have gotten a slap on the wrist. This is about a homophobic judge. Nothing more.
Since Prisoners are considered wards of the state; sex between an inmate and a guard can never be consensual. The power dynamic that prison settings afford to guards makes it so that his sexual proposition will always be coercive by nature. Even if you are criminal how do you tell the bully, who is armed with Arms and authority, no? And even if you do, if he really wants it, how long you think you’re going to be able to say no for? There’s a reason most jurisdictions have laws and statutes against Police/Prison Guards/ those carrying badges, guns, and handcuffs having sex with persons in their custody.
He is a threat to society. If he has a family to care about, family that would be affected by him not being present, then why is he preying on those who are unable to defend themselves? At work none the less; so now not only is he a cheater hes also deadbeat too.
Economical Nonsense and prison in the same sentence is utter nonsense. They’re not over crowed, the wardens just like to maximize the usage of space. There are so many criminals and wrong doers these days to lock up, its crazy. If you only need 5.253 ft of clearance to sleep why should we give them 9ft? Every one looses 4ft but we gain $200k, i mean a few extra heads to rehabilitate. Wait, don’t tell me you’re one of those liberals that wants us to build schools, fund education, and release all those lazy criminals we’ve locked up for smoking and selling dime bags of weed? How would CoreCivic (formerly known as CCA) make the $2bn/year it needs to line it and its shareholders pockets?? Sure school might be 30k/year cheaper for the tax payers, but where is CoreCivics return on investment in that situation? College is great and all but where is the money there?; DeVry Uni is $2bn in the red every year. They only pay you for 4 years (maybe), no free labor, and they rarely come back. Public Safety will suffer for it! Better to hand out a few priors, no training, and a dime bag of weed. Works so well 3/4 of them come back and become permanent residents.
socalbreeder1, I am not talking about shareholders, but taxpayers. Sure, shareholders want to make the more profit they can on the back of taxpayers (and inmates) and consequently want more inmates in the(ir) prisons, but it is certainly not to the benefit of taxpayers…not even talking about fair justice. States seem indeed sometimes bound by contracts with CoreCivic (or CCA at the time) that “the prison would remain 90% full” (source1 and also, source2)
It raises doubts about a so-called fair justice system and the way public money is used, since those prisons HAVE TO be filled to that level of occupancy to not get financial penalties (the last straw!) In that sense, the justice system might be under influence and it is also an economical nonsense for taxpayers. They will pay for more people behind the bars and for longer prison sentences, but many of those inmates could also just resume their lives outside without costing an additional dollar to Americans and without causing further security issues. I think those private prison corporations play to their profit, with the long tradition of American people’s fears…and it all becomes a vicious circle of violence and general public exploitation.
You also stated that the prison were not crowded. This is what Michael E. Horowitz, inspector general of the United States Department of Justice has to say:
“First, despite a slight decrease in the total number of federal inmates in fiscal year (FY) 2014, the Department projects that the costs of the federal prison system will continue to increase in the years ahead, consuming a large share of the Department’s budget.
Second, federal prisons remain significantly overcrowded and therefore face a number of important safety and security issues.”
You see, more inmates in the prisons is not in the best economical (and security) interests for taxpayers.
As for the rest of what you wrote, investing in better education for the young and youngsters has the potential to reduce the risks of them committing wrongdoings and then crowding prisons.
Beyond that, it is also about the question of rationalizing the risks for society, i.e. stop being psycho-rigid about prison sentences (parole or not and arbitrary or not). It is clear now that brutal force called “fair punishments” in that system, do not prevent people from doing wrong and it even likely makes things worse, pushing inmates to become more radical or newborn radicals and just destroy lives. Punishments should be wise and balanced for them to be effective.
That’s just the worst case sentence based on reading the law and the possible punishments written into it. A speeding ticket in some places can carry a jail sentence, but that never really happens. We won’t know the true sentence until it is given on 20 July.
Oh those naughty straight guys! They must be the ones I heard like to hump sheep in Colorado!
“Wouts now FACES to 125 years in prison followed by 75 years of supervision and $500,000 in fines. His sentencing is SCHEDULED FOR JULY 20 .”
He didn’t get 125 years. 125 years is the maximum sentence allowed under the law for all charges he was convicted of, if they were to run consecutively. More likely than not, the terms will run concurrently and he’ll spend a max of 15/20 locked up. That’s assuming he isn’t grated the opportunity for parole and the charges carry a mandatory minimum. Parole (Parole Board will be a jury of his peers) gets him out in under 2 years and w/o a mandatory minimum he’s out in less than 5 on good behavior(His favorite C/O gave him a private cell with Cable TV and put in a good word to the Parole Board).
Additionally, how much sense does it make to order 75 years of supervised release AFTER 125 years in prison? They only thing going to be supervising him is 6ft of dirt.
Reading for comprehension and understanding is fundamentally important. A few words can make a big difference in meaning.
Fire him, fine him, and give him probation or a suspended sentence. He doesn’t deserve jail time.
So forcing someone to have oral sex and anal sex is not a crime? Have you ever been raped?

About 30 years ago, a very wise man who I worked for, told me: “You have to always remember, there is nothing new under the sun”. Those words have stuck with me to this day.
I don’t believe any coercion was used. If I were in prison, and I had a little “deal” with a guard(s) whereas they get a blowjob from me (or visa-versa), and I get a little extra ‘goodie’ somewhere down the line, I’d be on my knees in a New York Minute. If I were a prison guard, and found a prisoner(s) who would give me a blowjob (or visa-versa), and in return, I’d get them easier duty, more out-of-cell time or whatever else, I would do it. It is the nature of things. It’s gone on (and goes on) in every prison in every country. I believe this guard is the ‘victim’ of a homophobic judge.
“You always have to remember, there is nothing new under the sun”
nope-he broke the law
Now THAT is Justice, he took away the inmates respect and sexual consent, now he’s gonna be forced to suck d*cks for the rest of his life.
