State of decay: US inmates sue jail over mold, mice & maggots falling on dining tables

The sorry state of a California prison, with mice falling on dining tables and mold growths covering the walls, has prompted inmates to sue the management. Lawyers say it is part of a systemic infrastructure decay problem.

A filed in a California court describes the stomach-churning details of life in the Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison in the city of Corcoran. The prisoners incarcerated at the facility have continually seen maggots and even mice falling from the crumbling ceiling right onto the tables in their dining hall.

Through the holes in the deteriorating roof rainwater and bird droppings seep through the crumbling ceiling and streak the walls. The constant humidity has allowed mold to spawn across the prison walls, according to Robert Escareno, an inmate who filed the California lawsuit.
