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.
The police report taken after Jane Doe returned from the hospital where it was verified she was ‘traumatized’ was only three sentences long. The city is defending itself by asserting the injury was the victims own fault because she was incarcerated.
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.
