New York to Limit Use of Solitary Confinement
will be a witness at a hearing on solitary confinement before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights next week. Thibodeaux, who was exonerated by DNA evidence in 2012, served 15 years on death row in Louisiana’s Angola prison for a murder that he didn’t commit. Most of that time, he was confined to a six-by-nine cell for 23 hours a day, with only an hour of recreation in a penned enclosure.
