Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights Hearing
on Solitary Confinement and U.S. Prisons and Jails

Dear Chairman Durbin and Ranking Minority Member Graham:
Please find enclosed the testimony I am prepared to present to the Judiciary Subcommittee on
the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights at the hearing on solitary confinement and
U.S. prisons and jails scheduled on June 19, 2012. I have also enclosed exhibits that are
referenced in my testimony and my relevant biographical information.
Thank you for your interest in solitary confinement. The issue has been a crucial element of
the representation my firm has provided for the past decade to a class of inmates in South
Carolina prisons diagnosed with serious mental illness.

With offices in the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia

Subcommittee may have.
Very truly yours,

Stuart M. Andrews, Jr.
