As reported by the Louisiana Voice and broadcast over the NewsBreak website in January, LaSalle Management Corporation aka LaSalle Corrections, paid out a $405,000 settlement to a former prisoner at the Jackson Parish Correctional Center.
The settlement was paid to Lane Carter who said a fall at the jail left him severely injured and that he was subsequently denied physical therapy. The former inmate further claimed he was often forced to drag himself across the jail’s floors because guards refused to provide him a wheelchair. Moreover, following his injury, medical treatment was denied on several occasions and his only treatment was an over-the-counter pain medication.
According to Dun & Bradstreet, LaSalle Management generates $34 million per year in sales and operates nine facilities in Louisiana as well as other installations in Texas, New Mexico and Georgia. Operated by the McConnell family, the company’s headquarters are located in Ruston, LA.
