A former inmate is suing the city for $10 million because, she says, jailers stripped her naked, strapped her to a chair and left her to be ogled for hours by male prisoners and guards.
"I had never been treated like that before in my life," said Perdue, who was booked into the jail last summer on a drug charge. "It was a traumatic experience. It has messed up my nerves."
Nurse Arlene Campbell wrote in the report that when she arrived at work five hours after Perdue's arrest, the inmate was still naked and strapped in the chair, her genitalia exposed. Men throughout the booking center "were laughing and making remarks under their breath," Campbell wrote.
