**This means that after a criminal defendant is convicted and sentenced, the Constitution still acts to guarantee his or her fundamental rights concerning conditions of confinement and treatment by corrections personnel.
Inmates' Eighth Amendment challenges to punishment and confinement conditions are typically brought in connection with federal civil rights laws, including 42 U.S.C. section 1983, and the Prison Litigation Reform Act.

I wonder, has anyone ever approached the ACLU with these cronic problems? Maybe they would do a class action suit?
