My cousin is currently serving a sentence in FCI Yazoo City Medium federal prison in Yazoo City, MS. He was sentenced in Houston, Texas but was transferred there. We just got word that he was beat up so badly that he was in a coma for a week. He just woke up yesterday, 04/18/12, he was able to make a minute long phone call to tell his family, I guess. So my question is there a law that can says the family can hire an attorney to investigate what actually happened? And why wasn't the family notified sooner? Don't get me wrong, if you do the crime you have to do the time but goodness you're supposed to do the time and get out not die. Any advice would help. I don't know all the facts but would like to know if there is something that we can do. Or maybe get him moved to another placeThanks.
