The accused is now the accuser. A Harlem mom jailed in the savage beating death of her 6-year-old son claims Rikers Island correction officers set her up for a violent sexual assault by a terrifying fellow inmate.
Geraldine Perkins, in a Friday notice of claim filed ahead of a planned lawsuit, alleged “correction officers who were assigned to watch over (her) did nothing to stop the abuse.”
And some officers, she charges, actually “took material steps to facilitate” the April 16 sexual attack by an “especially violent” inmate named Alexandria James.
The alleged assailant fashioned a homemade sexual device that she used to penetrate Perkins, who was supposedly under protective custody at the time of the assault.
“My client was the target of premeditated criminal conduct,” her attorney Aaron Rubin told the Daily News.
