Charging inmates

In a unanimous decision, the States Supreme court ruled that rogue sheriff (Hodgson) from Bristol County CANNOT charge inmates 5 dollars a day for room and board, prescriptions, haircuts, medical appointments and 12.50 for GED tests. The court order will make him pay back, 750,000 dollars he collected from 2002 to 04. God help him if he used that money for his own purpose.

The sheriff cites a centuries old English law in his reasoning for charging inmates. The Legislature is the only body that would decide this and the sheriff is lobbying support. Lets see if gains traction over this.
