DC Transgender woman suing city for Jailhouse Rape
Known only as Jane Doe, a DC transgender woman is suing the city after a night of hell. It began as a police lieutenant opened her "House alone" jail cell despite her objections, and let in a man who was already being investigated for a jailhouse rape, not once but three times.
News4's Jackie Bensen spoke with a transgender woman, who is suing the D.C. government, claiming she was sexually assaulted by a man who was deliberately placed in her cell. According to documents obtained by News4, the man was already under investigation for another jailhouse rape.
