The woman whose name is only known via court records as "R.W." was brutally raped January 27, 2007 by an unknown assailant. After going to the hospital she was arrested by police on a prior charge and sent to jail. While in custody a guard denied R.W.'s request to give her a contraceptive pill that was prescribed by the emergency room doctor, because it was against their religious beliefs. Now over 5 years later a court has ruled R.W. does have a right to sue the guard for violating her constitutional rights.
