Inmates sue jail over correspondence

April 17, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Two inmates of the Marshall County Jail have filed suit against the jail over what they claim is a violation of their civil rights.
A new “postcard policy” began at the jail April 1, prohibiting inmates from receiving letters in envelopes from their friends and family. Instead, those incarcerated must be satisfied with postcards. The reason for the change, according to Marshall County Sheriff Tom Chamberlin, is that several letters have been sent to the jail containing dangerous or illegal contraband.
