Default Fiance in segregation 10 Months!Disabled Marine HELP!

We are both new to the jail system. He was convicted of manslaughter and will be incarcerated for approx 3 years. He's been in solitary since jan and it's starting to take its toll. We've been trying to "get along" with the system but this is too much. Told he can't be in general due to wheelchair use and manslaughter charge? Never been in any trouble before. He's really starting to lose his mind. I need advice please???

Hi..i've called ada, aclu and the 20k attorney that i hired. Waiting on return calls. Not sure who to call at the jail? They keep taking him off his antidepressants. 3x so far. I guess the squeaky wheel as they say. He blew up at a guard last night when we were on the phone. Every single phone call they make him hang up so they can move another inmate. He got mad and called names. Trying so hard to keep him calm.

Try these people and let us know what happens.

A Protection and Advocacy organization has some amazing legal powers if they choose to use them. They have the legal right to go into secure areas of the facility with recording equipment.

The P&A organization here in WA works quietly but effectively.

Update! I just received a call from Americans with Disability in Arkansas. Their looking into my problem and going to call back. Said they would assign an attorney most likely because this was too severe. AMEN and thank all of you!

Got a call last night from my dear man. It looks like he lost it and tried to hurt himself. Broke his wrist. They finally got him Paxil and an ice bag. I can tell by how he talks he's "different". No word from aclu or ada today. Called and left message.
