This is an outrageous story of one woman’s assault and subsequent wrongful arrest.
Watch the video of the unfathomable events:

Trending: Finally! A Joe We Can Believe In
The I-Team has uncovered video showing a woman claiming a court marshal sexually assaulted her. She was later arrested by that same marshal. The marshal has since been fired.
The I-Teams investigation shows how the internal affairs investigation is revealing much larger problems at family court.
There are multiple marshals involved and allegations ranging from sexual assaults to choking a citizen in court. The investigation began with a 2011 video that shows family court marshals arresting a woman because she claimed one of them sexually assaulted her.
Monica Contreras went to family court with her 2-year-old daughter in August 2011. She was in the courtroom only a few minutes on a routine divorce case. Her husband filed for a Temporary Restraining Order against her during their divorce. He never showed up in court so the order was denied.
In describing the assault:
According to internal court documents, as Contreras was leaving, family court marshal Ron Fox ordered her into a waiting room for an unexplained drug search.
Contreras said Fox touched her buttocks, breast, and ordered her to lift up her shirt. A later internal investigation by Clark County courts validated her claims. Contreras went back into the same courtroom and told hearing master Patricia Donninger that her requests to have a female marshal handle the search were ignored.
Court Marshal Fox was fired, and hopefully the investigation will preclude other such reprehensible acts from occurring, and further tarnishing the reputations of decent and law-abiding marshals and officers.
