MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
RICHARD ROGERS, Senior District Judge
On October 12, 2007, the court held a hearing to determine the amount of damages to be awarded to plaintiff based upon her claim against defendant Christopher Nava. Having carefully considered the evidence presented at the hearing, the court is now prepared to rule.
This case was filed by plaintiff on August 13, 2004. Plaintiff asserted various claims against Nava, a former employee at the Lyon County Jail; the Board of County Commissioners of Lyon County, Kansas (Lyon County); and Gary Eichorn, Sheriff of Lyon County, Kansas (Sheriff Eichorn). Plaintiff sought damages for injuries she suffered while she was incarcerated at the Lyon County Jail.
Prior to the filing of this action, Nava was criminally convicted for actions that form the basis of this lawsuit. He was convicted of rape, aggravated criminal sodomy, attempted aggravated criminal sodomy, and traffic in contraband in a correctional institution. He is currently serving his sentence with the Kansas Department of Corrections.
