Wisconsin Witch Accused of Sex Assault in Alleged Prison Hostage Plot


"Not only does she practice a different religion than most of the inmates -- she practices a religion that actually offends people of many other faiths, including Christians, Muslims and Jews. Taxpayers shouldn't be forced to accept this hocus-pocus," Walker said at the time.

His office did not return calls for comment on the charges.

The prison's then-warden, Gary McCaughtry, had high praise for Witch.

"Jamyi is an outstandingly approachable person -- somebody that I wouldn't mind approaching on spiritual matters myself," he told the L.A. Times.

Witch told police she had been unhappy at the prison and did not like her co-workers. The Wisconsin Department of Corrections has put Witch on administrative leave while it conducts an internal investigation, according to a spokeswoman.

Witch is free on bail and is due back in court Sept. 22 for a preliminary hearing.
