The family of Earl Johnson, a Hardeman County inmate who died while incarcerated, is suing CoreCivic prison operators, claiming that understaffing at the facility led to his demise. The Jackson Sun reports that Johnson died in November 2017 due to severe bleeding on his brain after he was beaten by another inmate. The lawsuit, filed by Johnson’s widow, claims CoreCivic understaffs its facilities to cut costs.
