Update From Legal Aid as Counsel Representing Eyricka King

The Legal Aid Society issued the following update as counsel representing Eyricka King.

“We are happy to report that our client, Eyricka King, a transgender woman who reported horrible abuse and retaliation based on her gender identity last month, has been released from isolated confinement. Our understanding is that next week she will be transferred out of Franklin Correctional Facility, where she was subject to the reported abuse and retaliation. Thank you to everyone who made calls and kept up the pressure on the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS), and fought for #JusticeforEyricka. We will continue to monitor the situation to ensure that Ms. King is transferred to safer housing.”
