Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I research and compose a reply for you.
The inmate can ask for protective custody. That will keep him out of general population. Or, you can contact the lawyer that he had on his original case and have him get the matter back before the judge who can order protective custody.
The American Civil Liberties Union advocates all over the country on behalf of inmate's rights. Prisons are dangerous places but if you feel the prison's inattention to this situation rises to the level of a civil rights violation, contact the ACLU at ACLU.org. They may have too much on their plate to take up this inmate's situation themselves. They have chapters all over the country, however, and they may be able to steer you to a Florida civil right lawyer who will give him some pro bono assistance.
