The Alabama Senate Democratic Caucus called on the Alabama Department of Corrections and fellow lawmakers to “finally deal with the State’s prison problem.”
The statement comes after US District Judge Myron Thompson ruled that mental healthcare in ADOC’s facilities was “horrendously inadequate.”
Thompson called on lawmakers to find a “immediate and long-term” fix for the mental healthcare problem. He has not yet set a deadline for Alabama to address the problem.
