Complaints against Ala. prisons claim widespread abuse

(WTVM) -

A complaint filed with the Alabama State Department of Corrections alleges widespread abuse against prisoners, this time in three male facilities.

The Equal Justice Initiative's investigation alleges sexual violence and misconduct in the Elmore County Correctional Facility, involving high-ranking prison officials, the warden, and officers.

The calls about Elmore began pouring in at the beginning of the year.

The complaint also cites abuse at Donaldson and Bibb Correctional Facilities.
