Lawsuit Filed Against Mississippi’s Biggest Prisons

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — A lawsuit has been filed against two of Mississippi’s largest prisons, the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility and the South Mississippi Correctional Institution, claiming the state has taken inadequate responses to protect inmates from the COVID-19 pandemic. These facilities house approximately 6 thousand men and women. The suit claims people die in Mississippi prisons at a rate far exceeding the national average. The lawsuit was filed against interim commissioner Tommy Taylor, and the superintendents of the CMFC and SMCI, Ron King and Joe Errington.
