September 21, 2008

If you go to the link noted below, you will see the actual document making $295,000 the amount paid to the inmate for this oversight.  I wonder what % of the jury is married with children? 

Moldy Mattress Nets Inmate $295k Jury: Lousy bedding violated Wisconsin felon’s constitutional rights SEPTEMBER 19–A Wisconsin man serving time for reckless homicide yesterday was awarded $295,000 by a federal jury that found the inmate’s constitutional rights were violated when he was forced to spend two months sleeping on a moldy, waterlogged mattress. Reggie Townsend, 29, scored the six-figure windfall after a U.S. District Court panel decided that he was improperly treated while locked up in late-2004 at the New Lisbon Correctional Institution.
