The Racine County Sheriff’s Office has told KCE that 37-year-old Jacqueline Heidt was arrested yesterday, August 25, 2022. She is currently being held at the Racine County Jail being on a temporarily-set $1.1 Million dollar bond. The Racine County Sheriff’s office, who is leading the investigation, is recommending 20 charges of 2nd Degree Sexual Assault/Correctional Staff, 20 counts of Misconduct/Office-act/Excess Authority and one count of Deliver Illegal Articles to Inmate. Each sexual assault charge carries with it a maximum penalty of 20 years in the Wisconsin Prison System. The remaining charges carry a maximum sentence of 3.5 years. In total, she faces nearly 875 years.

A 2021 DOC Annual Report states that Heidt is also the Supervisor for the Trauma Informed Care Program. A source close to the investigation told KCE that Heidt was having sex with an inmate and gave him/her drugs. The Inmate later overdosed and they found K2 and a cell phone on his person. Heidt is a high-ranking unit manager and reports directly to the Deputy Warden. She also is part of the investigative division at the prison.

Investigators met with the Department of Corrections Internal Affairs and learned that Heidt was also accused of providing the inmate with contraband, which was a seized cellular phone.  The contents of the cell phone included pictures and messages that supported the allegations.

Investigators interviewed the inmate who stated he began a sexual relationship with Heidt in April of 2022, and their last encounter was August 4, 2022.  The inmate stated the sexual intercourse would occur in Heidt’s office at RCI approximately three to four times per week.  The inmate stated they had sexual intercourse at least 20 times, but less than 40 times.  The inmate stated he and Heidt also participated in other sexual acts in addition to the intercourse.     

On Thursday, August 25, 2022, Investigators made contact with Heidt and confronted her with the allegations.  Heidt denied the allegations and stated she thought this was retaliation by the inmates.  When confronted with the contents of the cell phone and other relevant information, Heidt’s demeanor changed, and she stopped answering questions. 

A decision from the Racine County District Attorney as to charge Heidt or not is expected today or Monday. We spoke to Heidt yesterday and she told us the allegations are “Not true.”

  1. She is not a prison guard sergeant…She is what you may call a CPS Correctional Program Supervisor and carries the rank equal to a Captain!!!!!

  2. Oh…there are no inmates at RCI (“Club Sturtevant”). They are now PIOC’s (“persons in our care”), doncha know?

    1. Perhaps if you had the courage of your own convictions, you would just say whatever you wanted to say? What’s a job mean when the other choice is doing/saying what you please, am I right? Are you “the punisher”? Is your presence diminished by not calling people “inmate” or whatever you want? I know guys like you.
      Put this woman in prison for life, she certainly deserves it! But FYI, everyone has a number…pray you never learn what yours is.

      1. True but not everybody rapes women and children murders robs and steals. Only them whom are convicted of those crimes. However is my name was Jenny my number would be 8675309

  3. That’s what they do in those prisons and when the corruption/correctional staff are reported for their crimes the say the inmates are retaliating and when their victims access ICE, they have staff in place to say it’s a “frivolous” or “harassment” which they say to their victims that they have sexually assaulted or their co-workers have sexually assaulted and in my situation one of their connected individuals got me pregnant and launched a campaign of filing fabricated complaints and fabricated court dates and appearances using corrupt judges that I did not find out about until June 2021 and after their corrupt judge had wrongfully convicted me and had me falsely imprisoned for 10 years and had intentionally denied me access to the courts to overturn his wrongful conviction in which he used a corrupt business man that was a friend of his whom he knew did not have “clean hands” thus violating the clean hands doctrine and knowing that I was at the time innocent. They use corrupt law enforcement officers to traumatize their victims and try to silence us with poison or fabricated schizophrenia diagnoses by using poisons like mercury to produce schizophrenic type symptoms then have our competency challenged to further traumatize us thinking they can force us into situations that protect them and their lies, conspiracies and crimes. It’s their psychopathic attempts to make us complicit it their sick sadistic crimes against us. If it had not happened to me, I never would have known about the corruption in the State of Wisconsin Police Departments, DA’s Offices, County Jails, Judges, Department of Corrections or Department of Community Corrections.
