PRISON BRUTALITY VIOLATIONS

Are you in need of a prison abuse lawyer?

If you or someone you know is in jail, you are still entitled to your constitutional rights. Today, one of the most common form of violations by enforcement officers are prison brutality violations. Prison brutality violations occurs when correctional officers violate the United States Constitution by using excessive force against prisoners. Correctional officers have been caught using violent acts such as physical restraints, chemical agents, and stun guns. Other common forms of violence behind the prison bars include inmates attacking each other and sexual assault by correctional officers or other prisoners.

The Eight Amendment forbids cruel and unusual punishment, which includes excessive force and guard brutality, in additional to dangerous conditions.
