I am an inmate that is the victim of a sexual assault. In November 2005 I was taking
a shower one evening when the curtain was opened. Standing outside of my shower
stall were two inmates…The first inmate pushed me back and told me to shut
up. He then said I had two choices. Either I bend over and act like a bitch or they
would beat me down and make me one anyways. So I [bent over]. He then proceeded
to rape me. He and the other inmate took turns for what seemed like an eternity.
I now have night terrors. I lied to get into [protective custody] because I was
afraid they would find out I told. I need help. I am a mental wreck. I am afraid
of my own shadow.
