Deaf Inmates

Deaf inmates' grievances were settled out of court when an arbitration ruled in their favor to allow felon ASL interpreters to join them on their chain gang assignments, to appear at parole hearings, and allowing them to be cellmates.  Deaf inmates now are able to complete their GED, participate in drug rehabilitation, anger management sessions, etc. The state are under no obligations to hire certified ASL interpreter, citing that the governor recently vetoed a bill requiring that they be licensed. As a matter of fact, they would rather be interpreting than pressing license plates.
