Former Hutto Officer Pleads Guilty to Sexually Groping Women

Hutto-300x227.jpgFormer federal immigration camp officer, Donald Dunn, has plead guilty of sexually groping women at the Hutto Detention Center. Hutto is operated by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the largest for-profit corrections company in the US. Hutto is also under contract with ICE. Sexual abuse and assault is not uncommon in these for-profit prisons that cut costs at the expense of human well-being. Mr. Dunn is just another exemplary trademark of the “CCA way.” When will we finally realize that these for-profit prisons are not the answer to the “immigration problem.”



AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A former federal immigration camp officer has pleaded guilty to groping female detainees in his custody.

On Wednesday, Donald Dunn pleaded guilty before a federal magistrate to two federal deprivation of rights charges. He faces up to a year in federal prison and maximum fine of $100,000 per count. Sentencing has not yet been scheduled.

Dunn confessed to fondling women during unscheduled stops while he was driving them from the T. Don Hutto Residential Center in Taylor to either the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport or a bus terminal for deportation. Dunn was a residential supervisor at the Hutto Center.

Last year, a state district judge in Georgetown sentenced Dunn to a year in jail and two years of probation after he admitted to groping female detainees at the camp.
