Case Summary

This is a large tort claim case pertaining to sexual abuse in the federal prison system. On December 3, 2019, fourteen female prisoners, all of whom had been in federal custody for at least five years and nearly all first-time offenders for non-violent offenses, filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

This is a large tort claim case pertaining to sexual abuse in the federal prison system. On December 3, 2019, fourteen female prisoners, all of whom had been in federal custody for at least five years and nearly all first-time offenders for non-violent offenses, filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. Seven of the plaintiffs were still incarcerated. The plaintiffs sued the United States under the Federal Torts Claim Act. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel, sought damages. The plaintiffs claimed that the Federal Bureau of Prisons (“BOP”) maintained “a sanctuary for male correctional officers to sexually assault and abuse female inmates.”

The plaintiffs alleged that they were subjected to sexual harassment and assault at Coleman Prison Camp. The complaint goes into stark, chilling detail on the pervasive abuse. The prisoners were frightened to report out of fear of retaliation and threats to their families including their young children. Some of the prisoners were forced to act as “look out” for guards as they had sex with other prisoners – and then were later sexually assaulted and raped themselves.

In addition, the plaintiffs alleged that the BOP maintained a policy which protected male correctional officers some of whom were known sexual predators. They claimed that Coleman Prison Camp employed at least eight known “sexual predators” and maintained a policy where if a prisoner complained she would be transferred to a local detention center in order to suppress such complaints. Correctional officers would use phone monitoring and restricted access to counsel to additionally suppress the women’s ability to report the misconduct.

As of January 2020, the defendant had not answered and the case was ongoing.
