Deputy sheriff accused of raping inmate at courthouse faces $15 million lawsuit
A woman in Maryland who was allegedly raped for 30 minutes by a deputy sheriff has filed a $15 million lawsuit against the Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office and her attacker.
The 34-year-old woman was detained at the Prince George’s County Courthouse awaiting trial when Deputy Sheriff Lamar McIntyre allegedly forced her to have sex with him.
McIntyre took her into an isolated holding cell and told her to get naked, according to the lawsuit. While making her perform oral sex and vaginal sex without a condom, the sheriff’s deputy “used his right hand to slap her buttocks extremely hard,” the lawsuit states. McIntyre also allegedly forced the woman to remain on all fours while he took pictures with his camera phone.
After the sexual assault, McIntyre took the woman to the court room “as if nothing ever happened,” the lawsuit notes.
The woman later reported the assault.
McIntyre has been suspended without pay and charged with second degree rape. He admitted to police that he was involved in the incident.
