+ - Arrested Man Sues Under Anti-Slavery Amendment->

Submitted by OopsIDied
OopsIDied (1764436) writes "Finbar McGarry is suing the state of Vermont for $11 million after being forced to work washing other inmates' laundry at 25 cents an hour while being held for trial. McGarry claims that prison officers threatened to place him in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day if he refused to work. McGarry was eventually tried, and his charges were dropped."
