Michigan Legal Services staff attorney Deb Choly was recently quoted in an article published by the Detroit Free Press about the conditions in Wayne County's jail facilities.

As the article states, Michigan Legal Services "filed a lawsuit in 1971 challenging the county's jail conditions. That suit has been the basis for an order mandating certain condition requirements and staffing levels at the jail." Click here to read the article.
