Lawsuit Filed Against Choctaw County Sheriff's Dept.

A lawsuit has been filed against the Choctaw County Sheriff's Department, alleging that women were raped in the jail.

The 32-page suit was filed in federal court in Mobile last week.

It alleges that two rapes took place in 2007.

Earlier this year, a judge ordered that several women be removed from the jail and taken to other facilities, after the rape allegations surfaced.
