A probe conducted by a US Justice Department found out that numerous acts of sexual exploitation are taking place at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility.


The women who are held at the facility are being sexually abused and probably raped by the security and the facility’s staff.

Earlier, last year the facility came under heavy critique after Tiffany Mofield passed away at the prison due to medical and systemic negligence.

Now the settlement must be approved by a federal judge.
