REPORT FINDS WIDESPREAD STAFF SEXUAL ABUSE OF PRISONERS

Washington Post - The men and women charged with ensuring an orderly and safe environment behind bars too often use their positions to sexually abuse prisoners. So concludes a recently released report from the Justice Department Office of Inspector General, which documents a litany of problems that still plague the nation's federal prisons. . . Reports of abuse arose in all but one of the 93 locations and involved male and female employees. Not surprisingly, allegations were made most often against staff who interacted most with inmates -- namely, those in food services, recreation, vocational and educational training.
