Jan Lastocy, Prison Rape Survivor, PREA Advocate and Consultant

"I know the judge did not sentence me to be raped," said Lastocy. "As much as I despise him, I don't even wish my rapist would be raped while he is in prison, because nobody deserves it."

From Silence to Advocacy

Threatened with a misconduct ticket that could delay her release, Jan chose to remain silent about the ongoing abuse, not revealing the truth to her husband or friends.

Today, she channels her experience into advocacy, working with jails and facilities to combat prisoner rape. Through her book, Jan aims to support those facing similar horrors, reinforcing that no one deserves to suffer such violations, inside prison or out. She is committed to ending prisoner rape, advocating for those who feel alone in their struggles.
