During the course of this investigation, Investigator  and other WCCW employees treated Jane Doe 2 as a suspect, rather than as a potential victim.
On information and belief, Defendant  has been under investigation for alleged sexual contact with several women prisoners during the course of his employment at WCCW.
At the conclusion of the investigation, Defendant  was allowed to return to work at WCCW. As a result, he was able to sexually assault Jane Doe I and Jane Doe 44 and engage in sexual misconduct directed toward other class members.
During the course of this investigation, Investigator  and other WCCW employees treated Jane Doe 1 and the other inmate as suspects, rather than as potential victims....
Defendant  was allowed to return to work at WCCW.
At the time, a transfer to Mission Creek would have been tantamount to retaliation against Jane Doe 1, because it would have made it significantly more difficult for her to receive visits from her child, caused her to lose her employment at WCCW, and resulted in a loss of property she has acquired at WCCW.
The council's goal is to "work collaboratively with the WCCW staff to enhance the visiting process." Council members simply try to encourage visiting in an attempt to help the inmates maintain positive support systems.
A common reason expressed by council members as to why they initially got involved was their interest in better understanding what WCCW was like.
WCCW administrators and council members are working to find a balance of something that provides a comfortable environment, yet does not pose a significant security risk.
But more important, they are thrilled at the notion that they could be bettering the lives of some of the women incarcerated at WCCW.
WCCW is a facility with 900 inmates of varying custody levels.
