A female inmate at a New York correctional facility has filed a lawsuit alleging that a male inmate, who posed as “transgender” to gain access, sexually propositioned, groped, and raped her.

The lawsuit claims that staff ignored her complaints and that the male inmate admitted to posing as transgender to gain access to female inmates.

The lawsuit specifically names correction officers and the City of New York as defendants.

The city declined to comment on the specifics of the lawsuit.

The inmate’s lawyer stated that there are accounts from inside the prison corroborating the claim that the male inmate was encouraged to lie about his identity to gain access to the female dorm.

The lawsuit states the inmate was “instructed to claim that he was transgender by DOC staff so that he could stay in the female dorm where he would have access to female inmates.”

Nicholas Liakas, the inmate’s attorney said, “We have some accounts from inside the prison that as the [transfer] request was being made…the [DOC] officer said something along the lines of ‘if you want to go into the women’s facility, all you have to do is say you’re trans.’”

According to the lawsuit, “While [Doe] was sleeping in her bed, the Perpetrator, took the opportunity to sexually assault [Doe] again… pull[ing] down her pants while she was sleeping and begin[ing] to rape her.”

The lawsuit also alleges that despite complaints, the male inmate was not removed from the facility, and the inmate was later discharged from the facility.
