According to the AP, guards at Pauxtent prison in Jessup called Sandy Brown an animal and encouraged her to kill herself while she was an inmate there. She was placed in solitary confinement for 66 days after a mental health screening, and guards also watched her shower.
Brown sued, and a judge ruled this week that she was sexually abused through voyeurism. Brown’s lawyer told the AP that she hopes the legal victory can set a framework so policies on transgendered inmates will be adopted nationwide.
