Water deprivation, hog-tying of mentally ill inmate among complaints at prison near Ann Arbor

An advocacy group alleges mentally ill female inmates at a state prison in Washtenaw County suffered human rights abuses, including food and water deprivation, excessive force and the holding of mentally ill inmates in solitary confinement.
American Civil Liberties Union letters to the Michigan Department Of Corrections obtained by The Ann Arbor News show numerous allegations of inhumane treatment at the Women's Huron Valley Correctional Facility. The facility in Pittsfield Township, is the only prison for women in Michigan. It can house up to 2,143 inmates, according to the Department of Corrections.
