Two ex-IDOC officers face sex, drug charges


LINCOLN — Two former correctional officers at the Logan Correctional Center in Lincoln are accused of bringing drugs into the facility and committing sexual misconduct involving three inmates at the women's prison.

A Logan County grand jury returned indictments against Ryan M. Motley, 31, of Chatham, charging him with unauthorized delivery of contraband into a penal institution by an employee; unauthorized possession of contraband in a prison; unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and custodial sexual misconduct.

Motley, who worked for the Illinois Department of Corrections for about two years, is accused of bringing alprazolam and clonazepam into the prison on Oct. 16, 2016, and giving it to a 27-year-old female inmate serving time for obstruction of justice.

The same inmate is named as a victim in sexual misconduct charges against Motley involving alleged sexual contact between June 1 and Oct. 16, 2016.

A 27-year-old inmate serving 10 years for aggravated driving under the influence also allegedly received drugs from Motley in October, according to charges.

Bond was set at $100,000, meaning Motley must post $10,000 to be released.

William J. Wolfsburger, 54, of Riverton faces five counts of custodial sexual misconduct involving a female inmate at the prison.

Charges state that the former employee had sexual contact with a 44-year-old woman serving 40 years for murder. The incidents allegedly occurred from June 1 to November 15, 2016.

Wolfsburger, who worked for IDOC for 21 years, was released after posting $7,500.

IDOC spokeswoman Nicole Wilson said the agency could not provide information about the alleged offenses.
