"The ACLU of Texas today filed suit in federal district court seeking
class action damages on behalf of three immigrant women who were
sexually assaulted while in custody of Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE) at the T. Don Hutto Family Residential Center in
Taylor, along with numerous others who experienced similar trauma. Defendants named in the suit include three ICE officials; Williamson
County; Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the private
corporation in charge of managing the Hutto facility; the former
facility administrator for Hutto; and Donald Dunn, a guard who pled
guilty in state court to three counts of official oppression and two
counts of unlawful restraint based on his assaults of five women.
Separately, Dunn has been charged with four additional federal counts
of criminal violation of civil rights and is awaiting sentencing on two
of them." - ACLU of Texas, Oct. 19, 2011.
