Prisoner Rights for Freedom of Expression, Religion, & More
Because someone is charged with a crime it does not completely revoke all their rights. While the Thirteenth Amendment states that “…slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States…,” prisoners still retain the rest of their civil and constitutional rights. These include:
- Freedom of Expression & Communication
- Freedom of Religion
- Freedom from Punishments (Arbitrary, Cruel, Unusual)
- Freedom from Discrimination (Race, Religion, Gender, National Origin)
- Treatment for Medical Conditions

Let us Fight for Your Rights with our WV Prisoner Litigation Services
Prisoners who endure arbitrary, cruel, or unusual punishment experience violation of their civil rights. Prison inmates who also face discrimination due to race, religion, or national origin may be eligible to file a suit against the entity that violated their rights. Both public and private prisons must allow for freedom of expression and communication. If you have a condition that requires medical treatment, receiving it is your right, whether you are in prison for a few months, or even for life. If you experience any infringement of your rights while you are in prison or jail, before, or after, call our law offices in Charleston and Lewisburg today. Stroebel & Johnson will fight for your rights both in and out of the courtroom, so you know you can count on us.
