Woman files lawsuit against Kenosha County Jail after alleged sexual assault

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — A woman who was sexually assaulted by a guard at the Kenosha County jail has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit.

Katie Irving filed the suit Tuesday against Kenosha County, Sheriff David Beth and correctional officer Jonathan Kwiatkowski. Irving was on probation for drug charges and went to the jail to have her electronic monitor adjusted in July 2015 when Kwiatkowski assaulted her. He's serving a six-year prison term for sexual assault and misconduct in office.

Kenosha County Corporation Counsel Joseph Cardamone III says he has not yet seen the lawsuit.
