Anthony Gay’s decades in solitary confinement led to self-mutilation. Now a proposed law to limit prisoner isolation in Illinois is named in his honor.
March 10, 2020
The Anthony Gay Isolated Confinement Restriction Act would bar the Illinois Department of Corrections from placing an inmate in isolation for more than 10 days in a six-month period. It also would require IDOC to give isolated inmates access to group therapy, medical appointments, educational classes, job assignments and exercise when outside their cells.
