Grant County Detention Center

On February 13, 2003, an 18 year old was stopped by police in Pendleton County for a traffic violation; he fled and eluded officers, prompting his detention in the jail. The victim was placed in a general population cell which was temporarily housing Pendleton's prisoners, including felons. The 125 pound victim was stripped and carried to a shower area where he was raped multiple times. Three inmates were convicted for their involvement in the attack and received 5 to 15 year sentences. Grant County Detention Center has agreed to pay the boy a $1.4 million personal injury and negligence settlement. (Sep-12-05) [KENTUCKY POST]
