Hello,

Your son is in protective custody and the prison has an obligation to keep your son safe there. Your son's lawyer could try to contact the legal staff for the prison and alert them to this problem. Perhaps Corrections can work out a transfer to a different facility.

If your son's lawyer can't or won't take this matter further, try the ACLU. They advocate all over the country on behalf of prisoners rights issues. If they can't take this particular matter on, they have branches throughout the US and can probably direct you to a local civil rights lawyer who can assist.
