Tort Claim: Juvenile Correction Supervisor Raped Inmate, Has Victim's Initials Tattooed on Her Neck

Posted by George Prentice on Thu, Nov 15, 2012 at 9:13 AM

The alleged target of lewd conduct by a supervisor at the Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections has filed a civil claim against the State of Idaho and IDJC officials at the Nampa facility.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that the victim, a 15-year-old male, says he suffered emotional and personal distress as a result of "statutory rape, lewd, and lascivious conduct, sexual battery, neglect and other acts and omissions committed by employees of the state of Idaho."

The suit also says that the Nampa Police Department was made aware of the conduct after another IDJC employee discovered it.

Julie McCormick, 31, is charged with lewd conduct with a child.


An affidavit alleges that the victim had a sexual relationship with the supervisor, 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.

A tort claim filed Wednesday alleges that McCormick groomed the victim "in a manner commonly utilized by child molesters," and that she would launder the victim's clothing and bedding at her home and return them heavily perfumed. The claim also alleges that McCormick would give the victim "love notes" and remove letters and photos from the victim's girlfriend from the victim's cell.

In this week's Boise Weekly, we chronicle how 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.

McCormick remains behind bars at the Canyon County Jail, charged with lewd conduct with a child.

Gov. Otter.... When are you going to clean up your mess. You appointed the director... It's time to clean house. How many more juvenile and staff have to be hurt before you do something. Staff tried to bring issues to the attention of the director and administration. Unfortunately, they had their own agenda to prove.
