Default Help with harassment by guards

Hello, I have questions regarding where to get help for my son who is in Menard prison in Il. We have written letters to the warden and the Dept. of Inmate Issues in Springfield as well as calling the Internal Affairs Division of the prison and my son's counselor. A handful of guards have been consistently harassing him. They keep his mail from him for months at a time,destroy his property and a host of other things. His grievances are unanswered. Where can I get help for him?

Hi welcome to PTO! I'm sorry this is happening to you guys. I know it's not easy to deal with. I'm not too knowledgeable on things like this, so I guess my one suggestion is to consult with a lawyer. Our government definitely needs to take a better look at our prisons as too much stuff happens within them that goes unnoticed. Anyways, a lawyer might have much better advice for you. Sorry!!

John Howard association of illinois.

Google organization info.

This is just not your son. My LO a list of grievance and he is not a complainer. Menard has just lost a lawsuit by mentally ill prisoners.

Keep the faith.
