Will my medical needs be met in prison?

Video Transcription

Unfortunately the answer is probably not. Medical care in Federal and State prisons is almost non-existent. It is a disgraceful situation, especially in the Florida prison system. The Miami Herald and other newspapers have written how corrupt and how pathetic, filthy, dirty, and horrible the Federal and State prisons are.

In the Florida system especially, there’s virtually no meaningful medical care except in rare circumstances. Very often the correction officers don’t care. People can put in for medical assistance day after day after day and be ignored. The Federal system is not much better.

The bottom line is if you’re going to serve time and you have medical issues, get that taken care of before you go in to serve your sentence because you cannot count of quality medical care if you’re serving time.

I’m embarrassed as a lawyer to say that that’s the case, but that is the case. Anyone who is involved in the criminal justice system, State or Federal, will tell you that what I’m telling you is 100% accurate.
