Transsexual alleges rape in jail
Jason Auslander | The New Mexican

A transsexual arrested late last week in what Santa Fe police call a rare case of prostitution was allegedly raped early Sunday morning by an unknown man while incarcerated in the Santa Fe County jail, according to a news release from the sheriff's department.

However, the 31-year-old man was in protective custody -- meaning he was by himself in a cell -- at the time and was unable to give any description of his attacker, said Undersheriff Robert Garcia. The man apparently alleged that someone entered his cell and raped him, he said.
