Kentucky Attorneys Fight Violation of Inmate's Right to Marry

Brad Jones Brooke Sauer

Late last week, Craig Henry PLC filed suit against the Shelby County, Kentucky Clerk, Carole Sue Perry, alleging that she is violating a Louisville man’s right to marry a woman who is incarcerated in a Kentucky prison. Bradley Jones wishes to marry Kathryn Brooke Sauer, his middle school sweetheart with whom he lost contact for nearly two decades. However, Brooke is incarcerated at the Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women. Though KCIW’s Warden Janet Conover has approved a marriage, the Shelby County Clerk refuses to issue Brad and Brooke a marriage license. The lawsuit alleges Carole Sue Perry’s actions violate the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
