Temperature regulated in St. Albans prison

Print More

A wing of the state prison in St. Albans can be used only for storage or office space, unless its temperature can be maintained at above 59 degrees. That provision of this year’s capital construction budget was prompted by the suicide last October of inmate James Quigley, who had complained of cold nights in solitary confinement. Quigley’s claims were confirmed in an investigative report on prison deaths released this winter.
