This is not an isolated case of elder abuse at the women’s prison. Sgt. G admitted to an inmate that cases of inmate elder abuse are too common here. The latest example was a 64 year old lady who uses a cane. Her 20 year old room mate didn’t want to room “with an old lady,” so she flushed the elderly lady’s ID card down the toilet.

This act necessitated the woman with the cane to hobble to the yard office at every count time: 4am, 11am, 4pm, and 11pm.

No charges were filed against the 20 year old.

UPDATE: The nights she had to walk to the Yard Office the temperatures were between 28-30 degrees . She fell twice and thought she had broken her hip. The distance between her cell and the Yard Office is a football field in length.
