ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP — An Aurora woman who allegedly had sexual encounters with a male in custody at the Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles will be back in court for arraignment Nov. 21.
That date was set Thursday morning during the first court appearance for Alexa Rubin, 25, who was indicted about two weeks ago on four counts of custodial sexual misconduct.
The charges were filed in connection with acts that allegedly took place in February and April, as well as October 2012. Rubin surrendered at the Kane County Jail on Sept. 26 and was released after posting the required bond on her $25,000 bail.
At the short appearance Thursday before 16th Circuit Court Associate Judge Susan Clancy Boles, Rubin said nothing. Her attorney, Kathleen Colton, of Geneva, filed for discovery.
According to the indictments, Rubin had sex with, and performed a sex act on, the male on Feb. 14. They also had sex in April and she performed a sex act on him last year.
The male was 17 years old. One source said the incidents did not all take place at the IYC grounds.
Prosecutors said the Illinois Department of Corrections investigated claims against Rubin and brought its finding to the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Rubin worked for Wells Center, a non-profit substance abuse counseling agency established in 1968 and based in downstate Illinois. The company has a treatment facility in Jacksonville, an outpatient facility in Havana and a satellite office in Jerseyville.
Rubin worked for Wells Center for about 2½ years, and resigned in June.
