Judge is seen playing, talking to woman's daughter the entire time

Multiple employees and managers at the Clark County family court in Las Vegas, Nevada are now under investigation for allegedly covering up a sexual assault by a court marshal. A video has surfaced showing a woman saying that a marshal had sexually assaulted her during a drug search - whereupon the same marshal slaps the cuffs on her for "false allegations made against a police officer."

The video shows Marshal James Kenyon preparing to arrest Monica Contreras. She can be heard pleading with him. 'For what, sir? Why would I be arrested? Can you please tell me?'

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - An internal affairs investigation is revealing much larger problems at the family court in question, with multiple marshals involved and allegations ranging from sexual assaults to choking a citizen in court. 

The woman in the video, Monica Contreras went to family court with her 2-year-old daughter in August of 2011, in the courtroom only a few minutes on a routine divorce case. Her husband filed for a Temporary Restraining Order against her during their divorce. He never showed up in court and so the order was denied.
While Contreras was leaving, family court marshal Ron Fox ordered her into a waiting room for an unexplained drug search. Contreras says that Fox touched her buttocks, breast, and ordered her to lift up her shirt. 


A later internal investigation by Clark County courts validated her claims. Contreras went back into the same courtroom and told hearing master Patricia Donninger that her requests to have a female marshal were ignored.


"I think I'd rather have a female in here and he went anyway. I was just offended by it. I'm just offended that he asked me," an upset Contreras tells Donninger, who doesn't respond.


The video shows Marshal James Kenyon preparing to arrest Contreras. She can be heard pleading with him. "For what, sir? Why would I be arrested? Can you please tell me?"

Marshal Kenyon is heard telling Contreras to turn around and put her hands behind her back. As Contreras continues to ask why she is being arrested, Marshal Ron Fox replies. "Because of false allegations made against a police officer," he told her.

After repeated attempts by the marshals to get Contreras to recant her story, she breaks down.

"Let me go. It was all lies. I don't want to deal with anything. It was all lies. All lies. All lies. All lies. Please stop," she said.

Fox then tells Contreras the only way she can avoid jail is to step up to the microphone and recant. Contreras agrees, but does the opposite. "You put me in a room. You asked me to lift up my shirt without a witness," Contreras says. Fox then says, "OK, take her to jail."

Contreras pleads to hearing master Patricia Donninger to listen to her, but Donninger never acknowledges her, talking and playing with Contreras's daughter.

"How can you do this to me? How can you watch?" Contreras pleads.
 
The marshal in question has since been fired.
