Has Your Loved One Been Mistreated Behind Bars? Our Law Firm Is Here For You.

Those facing criminal charges are afforded rights and protections under the United States Constitution. So too are prisoners who have been convicted of crimes.

They are afforded protections, such as the right to be free from conditions that are "cruel and unusual" under the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution, among others.

What Constitutes Cruel And Unusual Punishment?

Here are several examples of cruel and unusual punishment our firm often assists with:

  • Prison insect infestations
  • Authorized sexual assaults or excessive force practices
  • Excessive disciplinary practices
  • Inadequate sanitary practices
  • Overpopulated facilities
  • Inadequate programs for disabled prisoners
  • Denial of medical care

There are all potential examples but the above list is by no means exhaustive.
