Former Oshkosh Correctional Employee to Stand Trial

A former Oshkosh Correctional Institution employee accused of having sexual contact with an inmate will stand trial. 38-year old April Paulsen is charged with second-degree sexual assault by a correctional staff member, along with two counts of delivering illegal articles to an inmate.

 She waived a preliminary hearing on Monday – and is set to enter a plea next week. The state Department of Corrections says Paulsen is no longer employed at the prison and that there is no tolerance for sexual harassment or sexual abuse in its facilities.
