You do not lose all your individual rights when you go to jail or prison. You are still protected by the Constitution, federal law, and state law.

Kentucky jail inmates and prisoners have the right to be free from sexual assault and physical assault committed by guards or inmates, the right to proper medical care, the right to proper mental health care, the right to be free from discrimination due to disability, and the right to practice their religion, among many other rights.

If you believe your rights or your loved one’s rights have been violated in a Kentucky jail, prison, or halfway house, contact us to discuss your situation.
