Three women were allegedly raped by a CO

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A federal jury Thursday ordered over $3 million in damages to three former inmates raped by a prison guard at Camino Nuevo Women's Correctional Facility in 2007.
The intertwined state and federal claims, coupled with questions about who must pay the compensatory and punitive damages, however, are certain to engender more litigation - probably from both sides.
