A 39-year-old transgender Century Correctional Institution inmate is suing the Florida Department of Corrections claiming she was stripped naked and ridiculed for having breasts. In the lawsuit Misha Sanders named a correctional officer, a sergeant, and a major at Wakulla Correctional Institution Annex as defendants. Sanders says on September 19, 2017, while housed at Wakulla Annex, she was strip-searched in front of inmates and harassed by guards. Sanders says since then she’s been ridiculed by inmates and is going through emotional distress and seeing a counselor. Sanders is now at the Century Correctional Institution, serving a 30-year sentence for a conviction of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon from Hillsborough County.
