Islamic inmate sues Greene County Jail
by Sarah Okeson
Another Islamic inmate has sued the Greene County Jail under the federal civil rights act, saying he was denied a Quran and a prayer rug and was unable to attend Friday prayer services.
The sheriff in the past has said in response to similar claims that the jail does have Qurans. He declined to comment on the latest lawsuit.
Richard Ray McLendon Jr. sued the jail and the officer he identified as the program coordinator who runs religious matters, in a handwritten lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court.
