The suit accuses former jailers Vincent Eric Aguilar, Isreal Charles Jr. and Jamie E. Smith of sexual assaults.
This is the second civil lawsuit that has come against the county and the jailers in the last year.
A motion to consolidate and continue was also filed on June 18 to add this case to the previous civil case that was filed by two separate women in August 2012.
There were several reasons stated by attorneys Ronald Armstrong II and Jarom Teller in the motion for consolidating the two cases, including “the cases involve common questions of law and fact” and “consolidation will conserve judicial resources by facilitating the resolution of the cases in less time with fewer expenses than if they were tried separately.”
United States District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos granted the consolidation on June 19.
The two women who most recently have come forward claimed they were repeatedly sexually assaulted in numerous ways by the guards and additionally were forced to perform sexual acts on each other during one of the incidences.
The jailers accused in both civil cases previously pleaded guilty to two counts of improper sexual activity with a person in custody after the August 2010 incidences. Two of the jailers are still incarnated and the other jailer, Isreal Charles Jr., has finished his sentence.
