family worried about an inmate who is being raped, beaten, and threatened with death by other inmates. the financial support of this inmate is also being taken advantage of by these inmates.

can prisoner's rights law help with this kind of situation? it seems that inmates have rights to be free from sexual abuse whether they're inmates or staff. can anything be done to help get them out of prison sooner? they are close to being released but that could be a year or two and this person has been in long enough and they seem to be doing better, as they have gotten their GED and furthered their education even beyond that.

a few people I talked to said one thing or another, but some info was helpful that might be relevant in this context. One person said keep calling many different places, and another said to look for a pro bono lawyer. is any of this useful? thanks.

typical lawyer answer: it depends/it's complicated.

Are there circumstances where you can recover on a civil rights suit for an inmate who is being raped, yes. Is every inmate getting raped going to be able to recover, not even close. Most probably can't.

and notice I said recover, as in money damages. getting raped isn't going to get you out of jail quicker.

Also it's pretty unlikely you need anyone who would take this pro-bono. You need to get a civil rights lawyer and get a consult. They can explain in greater detail why the inmate is probably SOL. If they do take the case they will do it on contingency and take their fees out of the damages (civil rights suits have automatic attorney's fees awarded).

Good luck.

I can make a call to prison for a fee and tell them what is up. Also can set up moral reparaitions before being released if needed.
