Male Inmate Accused Of Assaulting Female Inmate

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — A 21-year-old male resident of the Fort Apache Indian Reservation is accused of sexually assaulting a 23-year-old female inmate after they were placed in the same cell in a tribal jail in rural eastern Arizona.

Federal court documents say Emmanuel Burnette faces two counts of engaging in a sexual act by force while jailed Saturday at the White Mountain Apache Indian Tribe Detention Center.

An FBI agent’s affidavit says jail video shows Burnette engaging in a sexual act with the female inmate before corrections officers enter the room and separate them.

A lawyer representing Burnette did not immediately return a call for comment.

The affidavit says Burnett originally was jailed for assault and being under the influence of alcohol while he female inmate was faced tribal charges of public intoxication.
