Brutal Assault After Classification Committee Assigns Dangerous Cellmate
Dig this: I'm 63 years of age, been locked up 30 yrs flat since July 10, 1989 for possession of a pistol by an ex-con. I just got released from Ad. Seg. after 10 years (for inmate assault back in Apr. 2009) to be relisted to the "re-entry" program. However, on Jan. 14, 2019 I was "re-assigned" and sent to Alfred High Security. I went before UCC (Unit Classification Committee) and they assigned me to be in the cell with [Prisoner Y], an extreme psych. patient and sexual predator. After four days in the cell, on Jan. 14, 2019 at 4 o'clock in the morning after breakfast, I went to take a leak and while my back was turned he attacked me, hitting me and breaking the right side of my jaw which knocked me out. He then proceeded to break my nose, and my right eye socket and busted my head with something and now I have a grapefruit-sized hematoma on the back of my head.
I had major surgery on Jan. 19 2019. The doctor at TX Tech. Health Science Center, put three titanium plates in my face!! Now this dude [Prisoner Y] had just 1 1/2 month prior jumped on and brutally assaulted his last two cellmates; one of whom he sexually assaulted. Thus the above committee members knew all this and yet I was put in harm's way: attempted murder and agg. assault! After the fact I talked to five safe prison investigators and each and every last one of them emphatically stated "you shouldn't have been put in that cell! and that inmate was supposed to be single-celled and listed as assaultive/sexual predator!"
So now I'm stuck with the daunting task of trying to find a lawyer or legal organization that will help me litigate this immense wrong done to me.
