Police jail rape victim for two days

TAMPA - First, police say, a 21-year-old woman was raped at Gasparilla. Then, she was handcuffed and jailed - for two nights and two days.

A jail worker with religious objections blocked her from ingesting a morning-after pill to prevent pregnancy, her attorney says, keeping her from taking the required second dose for more than 24 hours longer than recommended.

The Hillsborough Sheriff's Office wouldn't talk about her medical treatment in jail. But Tampa police are investigating why more compassion wasn't shown toward the woman after she reported her sexual assault to law enforcement.



Yes...she had an outstanding warrant for failing to pay restitution on a prior juvenile offense. But to actively prevent her from taking Plan B on religious grounds is altogether a different matter.

Wanna take bets that nothing really happens to the medical supervisor in question?

Failing to take the second dose can cause a baby with severe deformities.

Hopefully, she'll get some counseling after she gets out.
