Female lawyers in the city’s main prison say they have faced chronic masturbation and constant sexual harassment from detainees, and a system to reward abstainers with pizza has worsened the situation.
A class action lawsuit filed on behalf of female law clerks and assistant attorneys in the Cook County Public Defender’s Office describes a deteriorating security situation.
It says employees are routinely subjected to harassment and abuse from male detainees at Cook County Jail and courthouses – and that both the Cook County Sheriff’s office and the Cook County Public Defender’s Office have failed to protect them.
“They are forced to regularly endure heinous sexual misconduct,” the lawsuit alleges, adding that male detainees threaten to assault attorneys, deliberately expose themselves to female employees and masturbate at them.
