NY: Court Orders NY Jail to Stop Putting Juveniles in Solitary (Includes audio)
Public News Service – February 24, 2017
The preliminary injunction issued Wednesday was granted in a lawsuit challenging the practice of punishing juveniles held in the adult jail by keeping them in isolation for 23 hours a day. Phil Degranges, staff attorney with the New York Civil Liberties Union, said young people at the jail have been confined to solitary – sometimes for weeks and months at a time – for infractions like speaking loudly or wearing the wrong shoes.
