My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Just Detention International, Inc., Los Angeles, CA, USA
I was forced by a police officer to perform sexual acts with another inmate. I was illegaly detained without a cause and also no drugs were found on me nor was I doing anything illegal. Nobody wanted to proceed to charge this officer of the law with any charges. Untill the Philadelphia inquire found out about my story and dug deep into L&I and found all kinds of errors that were made and even found a witness to come forward to tell what this
police officer did to me. Well it made the front page news and they could not sweep it under the rug no more! The police officer was then prosicuted and then fired for his actions. He appealed it and lost. I fought for years and it payed off! I was then contacted by just detention and they helped me through the hurdles by supporting me and showing me that I should be proud of who I am and I met others who were abused by the justice center. I am so grateful for all the wonderful things Just Detention and Stop Prisoner Rape has done for me and all the others! They are the voice that we need and love. Without them I wouldn't be the strong woman I became. Thank you for helping me obtain my confidence back and showing me the way.
