Lincoln Prison Chaplain Files Federal Discrimination Lawsuit
(Springfield, IL) — A prison chaplain from central Illinois is pushing ahead with a federal discrimination lawsuit against the state. Colleen Bennett-Houston says she was harassed about her hair and clothing almost immediately after being hired at the Logan Correctional Center back in 2012. She was fired in 2016. An arbitrator ordered her rehired, but Bennett-Houston’s lawsuit says the Illinois Department of Corrections was slow to do that, and is still retaliating against her for speaking out about her treatment.
