According to Plaintiff's attorney, Jeff Edwards of Whitehurst, Harkness, Ozmun, & Brees in Austin, Texas, the two guards watched as Jiminez was forcibly dragged to a shower area where the rape occurred. Their failure to protect Jiminez led to the extreme emotional and physical damage he suffered during the attack.
In a Settlement Agreement signed by the Plaintiff on December 24, 2007, Jiminez agreed to dismiss with prejudice all claims against one of the guards in return for a $1500 payment, which included attorney's fees and costs.
