Trans woman beaten after being jailed with men, lawsuit against San Diego Sheriff’s Department alleges

San Diego sheriff’s deputies placed a transgender woman into a cell with three men, one of whom beat her so severely that her jaw was fractured, according to a new lawsuit filed against the Sheriff’s Department.

The plaintiff, identified in court papers as Kristina Frost, required multiple surgeries and has yet to fully recover, her complaint alleges.
