Prison Guard Abuse

When You Have Been Abused by a Prison Guard: Get the Right Lawyers to Recover Your Damages

Pennsylvania and New Jersey prisons have been known to have serious problems with prisoner mistreatment.

Philadelphia jails have one of the country’s highest counts of sexual abuse from prison guards, according to a 2013 report from the US Department of Justice.* New Jersey prisons have also shown a high rate of of abuse, of both male and female prisoners.**

Prison officials have a duty to protect the safety of prison inmates and suspects held in custody. Officials who fail to protect or respect the rights of those in their prisons and jails must be held accountable.
