Charges dismissed against former prison chaplain

Charges have been dismissed in Winnebago County against a former prison chaplain accused of having sex with an inmate.

Jamyi Witch contends she was a hostage and the victim of an inmate assault at the Oshkosh Correctional Facility in August of 2011. But, prosecutors ended up charging Witch with three felonies, including sexual assault by correctional staff. Witch was employed as a Wiccan chaplain by the state Department of Corrections. She was dismissed in March of 2012.

Deputy District Attorney Scott Ceman tells WLUK-TV that the inmate involved has changed his story and that prosecutors are no longer confident in a conviction. Witch says she plans to sue the Department of Corrections and other agencies in the coming days.
