Female Inmates Regularly Victimized and Abused by Prison Employees

August 17, 2018

 width=According to the Miami Herald: Female inmates are regularly abused, raped, sexually assaulted and taken advantage of in prison. This is especially prevalent in the Lowell Correctional Institution, a woman’s prison in Florida that included male guard staff. One particular story seems to stand out more than many of the others, even though they are all quite horrific in nature. Assistant Warden Marty Martinez was known around the prison by the nickname “Daddy”. He would regularly target younger, petite inmates for his abuses. In one situation, he is said to have given an inmate quite the ultimatum. He said that the inmate would either sexually satisfy him or he would place her in confinement and take away any gain-time that she had accrued due to good behavior during her stint in the prison. This is just one case. There are others. These kinds of abuses cannot be allowed to continue in any way, shape or form. If you know of any abuses or have yourself been the victim of sexual abuse, it is important that you contact us or the police.
