Several managers and employees of the Clark County Family Court in Las Vegas are under investigation in the wake of an alleged sexual assault on a woman in court and a subsequent cover-up. According to Las Vegas CBS Channel 8, a court marshal assaulted the woman, then arrested her in front of her two-year-old daughter for creating a disturbance in court as a judge looked on and did nothing.
The incident took place in August of 2011. Monica Contreras and her daughter went to family court as part of a routine divorce case. Contreras was approached by a Court Marshal, who ordered her into a side room for a random drug search. The Court Marhal allegedly groped her breasts and buttocks, then ordered Contreras to expose her breasts, at which point she fled into the open courtroom and requested a female marshal.
On courtroom video, a confrontation can be seen in which another Marshal arrests Contreras on charges of making false accusations against a police officer. A judge watched and took no action as court marshals allegedly hectored Contreras into recanting her story, then arrested her when she refused to repeat it over the courtroom public address system.
The court marshal who allegedly assaulted Contreras has since been fired and an investigation is attempting to find out exactly what happened that day nearly two years ago. The marshal is suing Clark County alleging wrongful termination.
