A transgender former inmate who says she was raped in jail is suing Orange County, 14 jail employees and another inmate, claiming a violation of civil rights. The inmate, identified in court papers only as D.B., says she was removed from protective custody over her protests and placed in general population, where her cellmate, Josh Bailey, raped her on Dec. 8, 2008, according to the suit.
