Description

WFLA-TV reviewed 468 complaints by female inmates and found half to be allegations involving sexual contact with prison staff members. But prison inspectors rarely believed them or punished prison staff, lack of evidence being their reason why they couldn't prove allegations of sexual misconduct. WFLA-TV's investigation revealed a 'culture of indifference' among prison staff.
