Teresa Guzman provided a recorded statement to Sheriff’s Detectives indicating she was inappropriately touched in her groin area by the female Corrections Officer who patted her down, prior to her leaving the Jail library.
Sheriff’s Detectives obtained video surveillance of the incident from the Jail library which captured the entire encounter between Guzman and the Corrections Officer. The video contradicted Guzman’s allegation and showed the Corrections Officer at no time made contact with Guzman’s groin area. Guzman was re-interviewed by Sheriff’s Detectives and admitted to lying about the allegation. She indicated she "didn’t care for the Corrections Officers", which prompted her to make the false allegation.
