7th Correctional Officer Sentenced For Sexual Abuse at Women's Prison

A seventh former correctional officer at a federal women's prison in California was sentenced to six years in prison. Nakie Nunley, who worked at the prison in Dublin, admitted to sexually abusing five women, reports CBS News. Dozens of lawsuits have been filed alleging sexual assault and retaliation by the facility’s guards in recent years, including one that recently received class-action status, according to The Mercury News.

Nunley pleaded guilty last year to four counts of sexual abuse of a ward, five counts of abusive sexual contact, and one count of making false statement. Nunley worked at UNICOR, a trade name for federal prison industries, where the victims worked at its call center. He admitted to retaliating against inmates who complained about his conduct, and also admitted to abusing another victim by threatening her job. The plea agreement states that Nunley abused the victims between March 2020 and November 2021. According to The Mercury News, federal judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers declared the prison a "dysfunctional mess" and installed a special master to oversee it.
