According to CNN, on Feb. 15, 2016, the information was released concerning the charges against Captain Edgar Daniel Johnson, the correctional supervisor of Emanuel Women’s Facility located in Swainsboro, Ga. Johnson was charged with 11 counts of sexual assault against various persons at the prison, after his arrest in May 2015. However, reports indicate the rape accusations began as far back as 2013.
Lawyers representing both parties discussed further details about the accusation. Johnson is currently out on bond.
Casey Mincey, 35, was serving a three-year sentence in the facility for identity theft. As part of her assigned tasks, Mincey had the responsibility of cleaning the prison’s medium-security mental health wing. Johnson had access to that wing and the interactions between Johnson and Mincey began and then intensified. Innocent interactions led to inappropriate acts of affection and eventually an alleged rape.
Since Johnson’s arrest, investigators reported that numerous women from the facility stated they had similar experiences concerning sexual assault by the accused supervisor. The lawyer, who is representing Mincey and two other victims, further discussed the case. Charges were filed in December 2015, not only against Johnson but other prison administrators in the Georgia Department of Corrections. The victims chose to allow this lawsuit to be released to the public recently, as they “were in the process of getting their strength together.”
