PRISON: THE CROSSROADS OF CRIMINAL DEFENSE AND CIVIL RIGHTS

One of the most important goals of a defense attorney is to do everything possible to keep a client out of prison because conditions can be deplorable and abusive. Our prison system is not designed to rehabilitate criminals. There are other reasonable options to prison for many defendants convicted of a crime, including drug treatment, mental health treatment or probation.

Currently, more than 12,000 California prison inmates are taking part in a hunger strike launched to demand better conditions and a reduction in the use of solitary confinement.

Inmate abuse has also occurred in New Mexico. This is just one reason why criminal defendants in New Mexico should try to avoid confinement in a jail or prison.

Once a person has been confined to prison, the government has a duty to make sure that person's civil rights are protected. If a person's civil rights are violated, that person can file suit for the civil right violation.

If you need either a criminal defense attorney to try to keep you out of prison or a civil rights attorney to help you with a violation of your rights while in prison, please call McGraw & Strickland at: (575) 323-1529
