KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -

A massive lawsuit has been filed against the Jackson County Detention Center and the man who runs it.

It involves a brutal rape that KCTV5 News first reported months ago.

The lawsuit filed May 9 alleges that the female guard at the Jackson County Detention Center gave cocaine to the man assaulting Ryan Dumas during the attack in September.

The lawsuit says the attack violated Ryan Dumas' civil rights and the jail is responsible. It specifically calls out guards for not doing their jobs and failing to do hourly checks, even dealing drugs.

The lawsuit alleges inmates can roam around the prison attacking each other.

The lawyer in the case says the jail now resembles a third world country and is a disorganized mess.

The lawsuit highlights what allegedly happened last fall after a man on a probation violation was raped twice in one night and then sent the medical bill. The lawsuit contends the rapist was a known “shower shark” and guards didn't stop it.

"It has killed me. It has taken my manhood. I mean it has killed. I can't talk to anybody about it. I don't have a whole lot left inside right now … for like at all … by any means,” Dumas said.

Last month, a federal indictment accused four former corrections officers at the jail of assaulting a shackled inmate. In another lawsuit, two former inmates alleged that sewage often backed up in their cells, but jail staff refused to do anything about it.
