Government Lawyer Accused Of Sexual Assault Found Dead In D.C. Jail

The D.C. Department of Corrections is investigating the death of a U.S. Department of Labor lawyer who was being held in a D.C. Jail on charges related to a home invasion.

Authorities say 58-year-old Paul Mannina was found unresponsive in his cell early this morning. He'd been in jail since last week, having been charged with attacking a co-worker at her home.

According to court documents, the woman told police that Mannina had a "crush'' on her and that he used a stun gun on her during the attack. He was charged with third-degree sex abuse and burglary.

At a hearing yesterday, police testified that shortly after the attack Mannina had been admitted to a Montgomery County hospital with a high blood-alcohol content and Tylenol and opiates in his system.

Mannina worked at the Labor Department's Division of Plan Benefits Security.
