A teenage girl serving time at a juvenile jail in Orlando, Florida, has accused one of the facility guards of raping her and said that he warned her against reporting the incident by issuing threats to her.
26-year-old Marcus Leon James has been employed as a corrections officer at the Orange County Regional Juvenile Assessment and Detention Center for three-and-a-half years.
On Sunday, near 11:00 p.m., James reportedly ordered two young women to go to separate sections of the facility for cleaning duties. After the girls began their work James allegedly approached one of them, age 17, and took her to an empty office. When he got her alone he allegedly hit her, and sexually assaulted her by making her perform oral sex on him before he penetrated her until he ejaculated.
