Cruel & Unusual Punishment

Weird Universe

A Vietnam vet jailed for menacing his wife is suing Nassau County, NY for an unusual injury he received during his 2007 incarceration in the county facility. The man was bitten, on the penis, by a rat that came out of a hole in the mattress he was sleeping on. He was treated, wound care and rabies shots, on the county dime. The man thinks his trauma is worth a cash settlement as well, due to lack of sufficient pest control at the jail. He may have a point.
