Target: Greg H. Bower, Ada County Prosecutor

Goal: Punish jailer to the fullest extent of the law for sexually victimizing an inmate in his care twice

Some rights are universal human rights. That means they apply to everyone, no matter what, even to people who wind up in jail. One of these fundamental rights is the right to not be sexually victimized. Unfortunately, that right was violated for an inmate in Ada County, Idaho, when a jailer employed by the Sheriff’s Office allegedly assaulted her not just once, but twice. For his offense, the jailer needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

When Seanjay Wright allegedly assaulted a woman in jail in Ada County, he did not just victimize her. That alone would have been a bad enough crime. But due to Seanjay Wright’s unique position as a jailer, he had a solemn duty to uphold and enforce the law. Because of the nature of the position, there is also a high level of trust given to the person who holds it. Unfortunately, Seanjay Wright destroyed that trust and simultaneously helped to erode what little faith people still have in the justice system.

For his atrocious crimes against the inmate entrusted to his care, and for besmirching the name of law enforcement officials, Seanjay Wright needs to be immediately prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Greg H. Bower,

As the prosecutor of Ada County, Idaho, you are probably familiar with the name of Seanjay Wright. 650 men and women work in the Sheriff’s Office in Ada County, and Seanjay Wright, until recently, was one of them. Then he violated the people’s trust in him when he abused an inmate he was responsible for. People like Seanjay Wright are not just sexual offenders, although that would be more than enough cause to lock them away. In addition to his sexual offense, Wright also betrayed his coworkers by damaging the level of trust we bestow on law enforcement positions, such as jailers.

Furthermore, the fact that Wright managed to abuse the inmate more than once is critical to take into consideration, as we figure out how to avoid future situations of this kind. This type of situation should never have had the chance to happen once and can never be allowed to happen again. In addition to punishing Seanjay Wright to the fullest extent of the law, Ada County needs to assess its policies to see how to avoid having another situation like this. By taking these steps, Ada County can come to be seen as a leader in the fight against sexual abuse, rather than as a complicit participant in crimes like these.

S. & N.. This guy used his position to gain something he shouldn't have. He is not trustworthy, & should be removed from his position, fired immediately, & brought up on charges. Maybe if he goes to jail, he can see first-hand what it feels like to have his trust, & his body, violated.

An individual commits a crime and goes to prison. How to make them better? How to make such people more compassionate,loving,etc.? Degradation and physical and mental abuse is not the way. Congress needs a massive federal overhaul of its own system and dictate minimum standards of decency which are enforced rigorously in the prisons with stiff repercussions towards violence by inmates or employees of the prison. And once someone does their time, the slate should be clean so a true new beginning can happen with the goal of a well-adjusted, repentant, contributing member of a society. Only God can judge TRUE guilt. Prison inmates should also work and produce products and services which generate profits towards victim recompense and preventive therapies to help a young individual on the wrong track to get help they need and help curtail future crimes
