Default Assault on CO at Danville

DANVILLE — A Danville Correctional Center inmate who previously had been charged with aggravated sexual assault lured a female officer into a laundry room early Thursday morning, punched her in the jaw and attempted to rape her, union officials said Friday.

The medium-security prison on Danville's east side remained on lockdown on Friday following the assault. It will remain so until an investigation is finished.

The inmate, whose name is not being released because of the investigation, was housed in a gymnasium, said Anders Lindall, spokesman for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31. The gym is being used to house about 100 inmates because of overcrowding.

Thanks for your updates on Danville's status. It's one of the prisons who you NEVER hear about going on lockdown. If it were Stateville or Menard, then it would be no surprise since they're always on it. At least, now it seems to be off it.

Yes, they are off. Lockdown there is very rare. the last time I believe they were on lockdown was back in November I think and even then it was very quick, maybe only 36 hours.

Thank you for the information I do have a friend there. You never hear anything bad about that place until now, it is usually Menard.
