Student In Jail for Pot is Raped

A 19 year old college student serving a four weekend sentence for pot was raped by his cellmate last weekend. The cellmate was being held in the jail on prior sexual battery charges.

His cell mate held a ballpoint pen to the teenager's neck at about 9 p.m. Friday and then forced himself on him, [Sheriff] Troiano said. A member of the victim's family reported the incident to authorities on Saturday. Jail detention officers, who check the cells at least once an hour, heard nothing and nothing was reported to them Friday, Troiano said.

"If there was space available, absolutely we would rather keep our weekenders in a pre-designated area," Troiano said. "But because we don't have much space available we have to do with circumstances on hand."
