Violence in Prison

Sadly, prison violence is a regular occurrence. From inmate-on-inmate violence to the use of excessive force by prison officers on inmates, people in poison are often subject to brutal injury. Unfortunately, these incidents are often not reported.

However, according to a 2009 study titled “Contextualization of Physical and Sexual Assault in Male Prisons: Incidents and Their Aftermath”:

  • 19% of all male inmates in US prisons say they’ve been physically assaulted by other inmates.
  • 21% say they’ve been assaulted by prison staff.

Another study from 2021 suggests that women are also at risk of prison violence, especially sexual violence. Women make up at least 33% of victims of staff-on-inmate sexual assault and 22% of all victims of inmate-on-inmate sexual assault.

Additionally, news sources like Time Magazine and The New Republic have published more recent investigations into prison violence in America.

If you have been hurt in prison by a fellow inmate or a corrections officer, we may be able to help you seek justice.

Your Rights in Prison

So, what exactly are your rights? Many people think that just because someone is behind bars, whatever happens to them while incarcerated is part of the punishment, but that could not be further from the truth. Incarcerated people are still people, and therefore the law has granted them specific rights that must be upheld.

Rights available to those in prison include:

  • Under the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution, Prison guards and staff have a legal duty to protect prisoners from assault by other prisoners as well as refrain from using excessive force themselves.
  • Additionally, prison officials may be violating the Eighth Amendment if they failed to respond to a risk they knew about as well as if the conditions and practices of the prison have created the risk of assault.
  • While officers may use force under certain circumstances in an effort to keep order, they are NOT permitted to use force maliciously and with the intent to cause harm.
