Kentucky jailers convicted of arranging the rape of a teen inmate

Two Kentucky jailers and their former supervisor have been sentenced for conspiring to violate the civil rights of a teenager who had been brought to the jail in February 2003.

The teenager was at the suburban Cincinnati jail on Valentine's Day 2003 on a traffic-related charge. The jailers made comments to the boy that he looked effeminate and would make a good "girlfriend" for the other inmates. They then put him in a group cell, where he was repeatedly raped.

One of the jailers got a 15-year sentence, while the other received 14 years. Their supervisor received seven years.
