A female corrections officer was beaten and raped Thursday morning by an inmate in the law library on the fifth floor of the Duval County jail, Sheriff John Rutherford announced.
The veteran officer was beaten, threatened and "viciously sexually assaulted" by Jonathan Tave, who was in jail awaiting trial for a 2005 homicide, according to the sheriff's office.
"He armed himself with some type of shank and used that to overcome the officer and then sexually battered her," Rutherford said. "She was punched and beaten, as well as (the prisoner) using the shank."
