This is really something that needs to be handled internally by the prison. If he has documented this and his safety is at risk and notning is done he may have to have an attorney go back to court and see/ask if there is any way for his location to be transferred. If the prison is failing him he needs to try and get back in front of the judge and inquire about a transfer.
