43 days in isolation, despite state promise to find appropriate setting for Jane Doe

Cool Justice editor’s note:

Atty. Staub’s comments follow posting of an unredacted judicial order by Hartford attorney Dan Klau on his blog, ‘Appealingly Brief.” Posted below Staub’s statement are links including today’s story at CtNewsJunkie.

Statement from Sandra Staub, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut, 5-21-14:

“This document is the court’s rationale for its decision, a decision that is being appealed because there is a great deal more to consider about Jane Doe and the history of violence by her and against her. The fact remains that a 16-year-old who is not even charged with a crime has spent 43 days isolated in an adult prison, even though the state has been promising to find a more appropriate place for her. It's past time to find that place.”
