Apparently the abuse is an ongoing problem that just keeps getting worse:

#MeToo Behind Bars: How Federal Investigators Are Ignoring Prison Sexual Assaults They Are Hired to Report

November 21, 2018
Janean Owens has been incarcerated at New Jersey’s Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women since 2009. In a civil lawsuit filed December 20, 2017, Owens alleged that since her arrival, she was sexually harassed and assaulted by multiple prison employees, six of whom she named in the complaint. According to Owens, she was forced to give and receive oral sex, groped, and constantly stared at.

“I’m gonna tear you up,” one former corrections officer reportedly told her.

“I want to hit that,” another said repeatedly, according to the complaint.

According to the article, there have been no less than 11 lawsuits since 2015; the DOJ has investigated the facility numerous times.
