New Mexico jail sexual abuse is at the forefront recently with KOB.com reporting that an MDC guard was discovered to have had a “sexual relationship” with an inmate. There is no such thing as a guard having a “sexual relationship” with an inmate. Under the laws of the country and this State, that is rape. There is no such thing as consensual sex between a guard and an inmate, period. As legislatures have universally agreed, a guard having a “sexual relationship” with an inmate is one the most abhorrent abuses of power in the long history of mankind. There are, however, procedural hurdles that powerful private prison lobbies have succeeded in placing between prison rape victims and the judicial system. If this has happened to you, or someone who looks to you for advice, contact an experienced prison abuse law firm.
