Woman files federal lawsuit claiming she was raped at Cherokee County jail

Cherokee County Sheriff Frank Reynolds and several members of the jail command staff are named as defendants in the suit, which seeks a jury trial and punitive damages. A spokesman for the sheriff’s office said Friday the agency had not been served with the lawsuit and could not comment on the pending litigation.

In June 2019, a Cherokee County deputy resigned following his arrest after he was accused of sexually assaulting a female inmate. Richard Gilleland was charged with two counts of sexual assault against a person in custody, two counts of sexual battery and two counts of violation of oath of office.

Gilleland isn’t named as a defendant in the lawsuit, but his arrest is mentioned.

“Although Gilleland was removed from the CSO in June of 2019, the custom, policy, and culture that allowed and encouraged widespread, pervasive sexual abuse at the ADC continued,” the lawsuit states.

The plaintiff was booked into jail on various drug charges on March 14, 2019. She was accused of being involved in a criminal drug trafficking enterprise and trying to hide evidence of the business, investigators said at the time. She was released on bond July 19, 2019, but arrested again when her bond was revoked that August. She was again released in October 2020, according to the sheriff’s office.

\n

Incident summary:\n\nThe victims were inside a barbershop for approximately 1.5 hours. There was a dark colored Kia Cadenza sedan and a white Kia Optima sedan that cased the area for approximately 1 hour until the victims exited the barbershop and entered their vehicle. As the victims began to drive south on Peters St, both Kia vehicles followed. When the victim’s vehicle approached a red lighted intersection at Peters St and Chapel St, the dark colored Kia drove along the passenger side of the victim’s vehicle. The driver of the dark colored Kia began to open fire on the victim’s vehicle, striking a three (3) year old child who was sitting in the back seat. The dark colored Kia then fled the scene continuing south on Peters St as the white Kia followed behind. \n\nInvestigators were able to locate video footage of the suspect vehicles as they cased the area just before following the victims.\n\nIf you have any information regarding this incident please contact Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta 404-577-TIPS (8477) and you can remain anonymous. There is also a cash reward up to $5,000 for information leading to arrest and indictment.
