Convicted Child Molester Suing After Being Raped in Garfield County Jail
WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) - A convicted child molester is suing the county after he was raped in the Garfield County Jail.
The man filed the complaint Tuesday in Walla Walla Super Court. He says he now suffers anxiety and nightmares and is now seeking an amount of money that would be determined at a trial in the civil rights lawsuit.
The man was jailed in August 2011 when he was accused of child rape when he was raped three times by his cellmate.
The plaintiff pleaded guilty to the child rape charges and is currently serving a 10-year sentence at the Monroe Corrections Center.
