It happens quite often that child molesters are attacked by other inmates - child molesters are not viewed very well even by murderers. However, I can’t recall hearing about a child molester who was legally a resident of the U.S. being awarded such an outrageous amount of money because inmates pummled him.
In reality, large numbers of inmates in our prisons are child molesters. It's more like "going home" than the myth of a hostile environment. Scum, who fill many of our prisons, are not squeamish about little things like child molestation and the molesters quickly find "friends" inside.
