Our good friends over at Prison Legal News have called upon readers and supporters to submit photos, videos, verdicts and settlements for potential coverage. We at the Prison Law Blog encourage you to heed the call.

The Prison Legal News notice is as follows:

We are expanding the multimedia section on PLN’s website, and need more prison and jail-related content! We know many of our readers have pictures and videos related to prison and criminal justice topics, and we’d like to post them on our site. We are seeking original content only — photos or video clips that you have taken yourself.

Please note that we are not seeking articles, editorials, poems or other written works; only photos and videos. They can be taken inside or outside of prison, but must relate to prisons, jails or criminal justice-related topics. By sending us multimedia content, you are granting us permission to post it on our website. Please send all submissions via email to: contentgprisonleqalnews.orq.

Please confirm in your email that the photos or videos are your original content, which you produced. Also please provide some context, such as where and when they were taken. Your name will not be posted online or otherwise disclosed. Please spread the word that PLN needs photos and videos for our website.

We also need verdicts and settlements in cases won by the plaintiff. Note that we are only seeking verdicts, final judgments or settlements — not complaints or interim orders in cases that are still pending. If you’ve prevailed in court against prison or jail staff, please send us a copy of the vedict, judgment or settlement and last complaint so we can post them on our site and potentially report the case in PLN. If possible, please email your submissions; we cannot return any hard copy documents. Send to: Prison Legal News, P.O. Box 1151, Lake Worth, FL 33460. content@prisonlegalnews.org.
