From the article: “Sexual contact between a prison guard and an inmate should be presumed to be coercive, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday.”
“A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated a claim by an Idaho prison inmate who said a female guard groped him sexually after he tried to break off a romantic, but nonsexual, relationship with her. A district court had ruled that two incidents in which the guard allegedly touched the prisoner’s genitals were consensual because the romantic relationship had not clearly ended.”

I honestly had no idea that sexual contact between an inmate and a guard could ever be considered consensual. How is this even a question?
