An Aurora woman who used to work as a substance abuse counselor at the Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles reportedly had sex several times with a male inmate of the facility over the course of seven months, the Daily Herald reports.
The Daily Herald cites court records indicating that Alexa M. Rubin, of the 800 block of Pontiac Court, Aurora, engaged in sexual encounters with the youth from October 2012 through April 2013.
