Female inmates sue Texas county for running ‘rape camp’ at jail

Two female inmates have sued a Texas county and three former jailers for running what they said was a “rape camp” at the county jail.

In a court filing obtained by Courthouse News Service, inmates J.A.S. and J.M.N name Live Oak County and former jailers Vincent Aguilar, Israel Charles Jr. and Jaime E. Smith as defendants.

Although the three guards were arrested in 2010 on charges of sexual assault and are now serving time in Texas state prisons, the women have brought to light new disturbing details about the abuse. They are seeking punitive damages for civil rights violations, assault and emotional distress.


“Beginning sometime in 2007 to at least August of 2010 the Live Oak County Sheriff’s office ran a ‘rape camp’ known as the Live Oak County Jail,” according to the lawsuit. “In this facility, numerous jailers, all employed by the Live Oak County Sheriff’s Office, repeatedly raped and humiliated female inmates over an extended period of time.”

“These forced acts of lasciviousness included, but are not limited to, forcing female inmates to repeatedly perform oral sex on male guards, forcing female inmates to repeatedly masturbate the male guards, the male guards masturbating in view of the female inmates, male guards forcing digital penetrative sex acts in the female inmates’, forcing female inmates to engage in sexual sex acts with other female inmates, including but not limited to forcing female inmates to have oral sex with each other, among other things.”

The complaint continued: “In addition to the repeated sexual assaults, numerous female inmates were sexually harassed. Certain male guards would strip the female inmates of their clothing and provide only shaving cream to conceal their genitalia. Certain male guards would sometimes force the female inmates to shower in front of them while instructing them to shave their vaginas. In other instances, while detailing their degenerate sexual fantasies, the jailers would pin the girls against a wall, grope their persons, verbally berate them, digitally rape their vagina and/or anus, then force them to perform oral sex.”

The court document alleged that the guards would “facilitate their carnal impulses” by withholding food and water, physically abusing the women, threatening them and taking away privileges.

LMAO If I lived there I probably would be simply because I would get jailed for disturbing the peace since I would protest.

Oh course it's not a funny story.  I hope these women win the law suit and that the guards that did this are punished to the highest order.

However, there are many people in Texas that are good people, they are neither inmates or guards and it isn't right to lump the whole state into this.

I'm in the state right above you, and I agree, the citizens of Texas shouldn't be lumped in with any of this. Texas has been doing some kooky stuff lately, but so has Oklahoma lol. Female incarceration in both states are ridiculous and so many are in for the dumbest reasons, it's a shame that these women went through this. They'll probably come out worse than when they went in. :-(
