Over 28 female prisoners raped after male inmates allegedly bought key from jailer

CLARK COUNTY, IN – So far, 28 women prisoners have joined together to file civil rights lawsuits after they were allegedly raped in the Clark County Jail.

The women claim that the suspects in the case, male inmates, had the ability to r*pe them after buying a jailer key from a corrections guard. The lawsuits allege that on the night of October 23rd or the 24th, male inmates were able to purchase a master key from Clark County Correctional Guard David Lowe. Those men then allegedly used that key to gain entry into the women’s wing of the jail.

Once inside the women’s wing of the jail, the male inmates began terrorizing the women who were seemingly helpless to defend themselves. According to the first lawsuit that was filed:
“The males threatened, assaulted, and raped the females over the course of multiple hours. The male inmates gained access to the females pods through the use of a key provided by corrections officer David Lowe. As a direct and proximate cause of the actions of the Defendants, [the female inmates] suffered horrific physical and psychological injuries.”​

The lawsuits allege that the male inmates were able to purchase the master key from Lowe for $1,000. In addition to Lowe being named in the lawsuit, Clark County Sheriff Jamey Noel and several other members of the correctional staff are said to also be named or will be at some point.

In the newest lawsuit that was filed on behalf of the women inmates, claims are made that the women who were allegedly victimized suffered significant emotional and physical injuries. Alleged in the newest lawsuit:

“Amazingly, even though there were surveillance cameras positioned in a location that showed the male detainees accessing the women’s Pods, and even though the incident involved multiple male detainees and dozens of victims over an extended period of time, not a single jail officer on duty that night came to the aid of the Plaintiffs and the other victims.”

The lawsuit also alleges that one of the women inmates who was raped became pregnant from the attack. The attorney for that woman, William McCall, said that the proof that his client was impregnated during the attack is because she had been in jail for multiple months before the incident. He said:

“Since she had been in custody for numerous months, there is no chance she was pregnant before she entered the Clark County Jail.” My client had a miscarriage in December of 2021.”​

McCall added that several of his clients now suffer from PTSD as a result of that traumatic night. McCall told Fox News Digital:
“The women that were subjected to the extended period that these male inmates were running rampant in the women’s pod still are suffering great emotional issues. What is disheartening is the inability of these women to afford therapy and counseling.”​

An attorney for eight of the women, Stephen Wagner, noted that the Clark County Sheriff’s Office terminated Lowe after the incident. Wagner said:

“The [Clark County Sheriff’s Office] fired one of its officers, David Lowe, after video surveillance showed him allowing male inmates access to security keys, and after he reportedly admitted [he] ‘intentionally placed himself deep into the pod with his back to the door to allow inmates access to the open pod doors.”​

Lowe was arrested and charged with trafficking with an inmate, aiding escape, and official misconduct. He is scheduled to appear in court on November 1st to answer the criminal charges.
