Sexual Assault

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a federal lawsuit against a detention officer at the McKinley County Detention Center in New Mexico, alleging he sexually assaulted two female inmates in 2003. The lawsuit claimed Detention Officer Brian Orr committed sexual abuse and cruel and unusual punishment and that the jail’s acting warden, the McKinley County commissioners and the company that managed the jail, Management and Training Corp., were negligent for failing to properly train and supervise Orr. The case was eventually settled for an undisclosed amount, although one of the accusers later said she received $55,000 as her share of the settlement. In a January 2007 criminal trial, Orr was found not guilty of sexual abuse.
