Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question.
You need to get a civil rights lawyer involved as soon as you possibly can. The American Civil Liberties Union has been addressing prison conditions, safety and inmate welfare on behalf of incarcerated defendants all over the country. This situation is right up their alley. They are at ACLU.org.
There are local chapters of the ACLU throughout the US, and if they can't look into this themselves, they should be able to direct you to someone local with experience in this area.
Meanwhile, you should also call the lawyer your son had on his original case who can find out all that's going on at this time and take what preventive measures are necessary.
