Inmate Abuse Reported at Los Angeles County Jail

In an article that could hardly be characterized as "news" a local newspaper reported that according to a report by the American Civil Liberties Union, there isabuse at Los Angeles County's Men's Central Jail. Frankly, I thought this was common knowledge.

Seriously though, the ACLU wrote a report covering a twelve month period of time from 2008 to 2009 based on weekly visits to the jail and reviewing numerous inmate complaints. Complaints ranged from assaults by to deputies to more complicated schemes involving other inmates taking direction from deputies.

As a criminal defense attorney I understand what a difficult task it is to keep tabs on deputies in a jail facility...More to come later...

If you or someone close to you has been injured by law enforcement whether in jail, prison or not, please call a veteran lawyer who can help you:
