ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – A woman who worked at the Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles has been charged with having a sexual relationship with an inmate, according to Kane County court records.

Alexa M. Rubin, 25, of the 800 block of Pontiac Court, Aurora, faces four counts of custodial sexual misconduct, a Class 3 felony, on accusations that she engaged in four instances of sexual activity with the same inmate on Oct. 12, 2012; Feb. 14, 2013; and sometime in April 2013, according to records.

According to the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice, Rubin began working at the department about two and a half years ago as a contract employee through the Wells Center, which provides services to the state agency.

Rubin was a substance abuse counselor at the Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles, according to the Department of Juvenile Justice.

The Department of Juvenile Justice reported Rubin resigned from her position in June. Her annual salary was reportedly $38,000.

Rubin was booked on the felony charges Thursday and was released after posting 10 percent of her $25,000 bail, Kane County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Lt. Pat Gengler said in an email.

She is next expected in court at 9 a.m. Oct. 10 in Courtroom 305 of the Kane County Judicial Center.
