FCI Danbury Employee Sentenced for Sexual Abusing Prisoner

Maintenance foreman given prison term, followed by home confinement and supervised release.

A New York man working as a maintenance foreman at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Danbury was sentenced to 5 months in prison and 5 years of supervised release for sexually abusing one of the female prisoners.

While working as the acting utilities systems repair operator foreman for FCI Danbury, Steven Wolff, 46, of the Bronx, engaged in a sexual relationship with one of the inmates in the women’s prison.

According to court documents, Wolff and the victim met secretly in the boiler area multiple times between July and November 2011. In exchange, Wolff brought contraband items into the prison, including hair dye, candy, greeting cards and over-the-counter medications for the victim and another inmate who acted as lookout.

Wolff pleaded ‘guilty’ in August to one count of sexual abuse of a ward and was sentenced in Bridgeport on Wednesday.

After his prison term, Wolff will also be confined to his home under electronic monitoring during the first 5 months of his supervised release.
