Justice Report Slams King County Jail

Justice Report Slams King County Jail, KPLU, Nov. 21, 2007.

The Justice Department has delivered a stinging report over health conditions in the King County Jail. The report charges inmates rights are being violated, but county leaders disagree.
The KPLU story links to both the 27-page DOJ report and King County's response.

DOJ's Civil Rights Division began the investigation a year ago, under the Civil Rights of Insitutionalized Persons Act, 42 U.S.C. §© 1997-1997j.
