WERE YOU SEXUALLY ABUSED AT RIKERS ROSE M. SINGER CENTER (ROSIES)

Join Hundreds of Women Who Are Seeking Financial Compensation for Sexual Abuse at Rosies.

Women have been sexually abused by prison guards and staff at the Rikers Rose M. Singer Center (Rosies) for decades. These women have been ignored or intimidated into silence for all of these years. But now, hundreds of women who experienced sexual abuse at Rosies are stepping forward and taking back their power under new laws in New York that expand the statute of limitations. Even if you missed out on the New York Adult Survivors Act, you may still be able to file your claim for financial compensation under the New York City Gender-Motivated Violence Protection Law (“NYC Gender Violence Law”). But the deadline to file claims under the NYC Gender Violence Law ends in March 2025. So, it’s important to act now and join the hundreds of women who are standing up to the prison system in the “Rosies Case”.

SEXUAL ABUSE AT THE ROSE M. SINGER CENTER

There is a long history of sexual abuse reports and incidents at the Rose M. Singer Center. A big part of the problem is that male prison guards and staff abused their power against female inmates and improperly engaged in all forms of inappropriate sexual acts with them. It was illegal and wrong for Rosies prison guards and staff to sexually abuse vulnerable female inmates who had no power to resist and who feared retaliation or other punishment. The sexual exploitation of the women of Rosies is a known fact and documented in prior lawsuits and investigative reports.

A brief look at the Rose M. Singer Center’s history of inmate sexual abuse includes:

 

  • 2012: The Department of Justice names the Rose M. Singer Center as one of the least safe female correctional facilities in the country due to an extremely high rate of reported sexual assaults.
  • 2017: NYC agrees to pay a $1.2 million settlement to two former Rose M. Singer Center inmates who were sexually assaulted by a male guard.
  • 2018: NYC agrees to pay $425,000 to a female inmate who was sexually abused by Officers Steven Santiago, David Johnson, and Nana Osei. She participated in an undercover sting operation to expose the offenders.
  • February 2019: NYC agrees to pay a $500,000 settlement to a female inmate who was raped by Office Jose Cosme, who pled guilty to felony criminal sex charges. A related administrative trial in 2022 resulted in the firing of Officer Leonard McNeill, who pressures the inmate to not report the attacks.
  • July 2019: NYC agrees to pay a $1.2 million settlement to an inmate who was violently raped by three male guards. In the court’s ruling, it was specifically mentioned that the Rose M. Singer Center has twice the national average for reported sexual abuses carried out by correction officers.
