Details of sexual abuse by guards at New York prison facilities

Several prisons in New York were named in a federal lawsuit by plaintiffs who allege cover-ups of rape and sexual assault reports.

Two men who worked as officers at Albion Correctional Facility are named in a federal lawsuit claiming a systematic coverup of sexual assaults against women prisoners.

The lawsuit, filed on behalf of five individuals who served time in women’s correctional facilities, alleges the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision failed to protect them from sexual abuse and acted “with deliberate indifference to allow that abuse”.

The new lawsuit seeks $50 million in damages for the five women.

According to the court documents, correctional officers at five different correctional facilities in New York:

  • Routinely engaged in illegal sexual activity with inmates
  • Created an intimidating environment for any woman who tried to speak out about the abuse.

“Rather than investigate officers’ sexual abuse of female inmates, investigators blamed the victims and coerced them into making statements, threatening punishment against those who remained silent and discrediting many of those who spoke up,” the lawsuit said.
