"A former residential supervisor at the T. Don Hutto Residential Center in Taylor pleaded guilty this week to molesting women he was transporting them from the center to the airport or bus terminal.

Donald Dunn pleaded guilty to two federal deprivation of rights charges, according to a press release from the U.S. attorney’s office.

Dunn admitted to touching illegal female immigrants “in a sexual manner” between December 2009 and May 2010, the release said. He said that he would stop the vehicle along the way, order them to get out and convince them he was conducting a legitimate search, it said.

Dunn has not been sentenced but faces up to one year in federal prison and a fine of up to $100,000 for each charge, the release said."

Dunn has already served a year in state prison for the crimes.  See our previous coverage of sexual abuse at Hutto:
