A federal jury found the Florida Department of Corrections guilty of condoning sexual harassment by male inmates in its Martin Correctional Institution.

Fourteen women, including nurses and a doctor, were awarded $630,000 for harassment they endured from 1999 through 2002. Evidence showed male inmates routinely exposed themselves, shouted obscenities and performed lewd acts in front of them.
