CASE ENTRY

Lacy v. Butts

Sex offenders imprisoned by Indiana are required to participate in treatment sessions in which they are asked to identify victims of their abuse and how they abused them. The questions aren’t about just the crimes of conviction; they’re about any sex abuse ever. And if the inmates don’t participate, they can lose good time credits that would shorten their prison sentences. Seventh Circuit: The Fifth Amendment prohibits this sort of compelled self-incrimination.
