Judge: Sexual abuse of inmates “distressingly common”

This past Wednesday, a U.S. Circuit Judge in Colorado made a powerful statement against sexual abuse in detention. Judge David M. Ebel ruled in a civil case against a corrections officer for his sexual assault of an inmate in Denver Women’s Correctional Facility. The judge awarded the survivor $1.3 million, saying he hoped to send a message that sexual abuse in prison will not be tolerated.
