Arizona's worker safety agency launches review after report details teacher's rape at prison

Arizona's workplace safety agency has launched a review of the rape of a teacher inside a state prison classroom.

The teacher was alone in a classroom with no guard nearby when a convicted rapist assaulted her.

The Jan. 30 rape was highlighted in a report last week by The Associated Press.

The Arizona Department of Occupational Safety and Health confirmed Thursday it was reviewing the case as a result of the news reports.

Agency spokeswoman Rachel Brockway says a review doesn't mean a full-blown investigation will be launched, and it can't give notice that it plans to investigate.

If the agency proceeds, it is barred from discussing the matter unless a citation is issued.

Prison officials say there were no security issues at the prison but are now adding cameras in classrooms.
