TRENTON, N.J.— An inmate at New Jersey’s only women’s prison was hospitalized after being pushed into a wall by guards just weeks after other officers were charged with misconduct.

That’s according to the woman’s attorney and a hospital spokesperson, who spoke to NJ.com.

The attorney and spokesperson say Rae Rollins, a transgender woman and inmate at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility, was taken to the hospital Thursday, treated and released after the guards pushed her into a wall.

The news publication reports she was treated for a concussion and a hand injury.
