The fight for answers involving inmate deaths at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center continues this week as residents and activists call conditions at the facility “inhumane.”

Former public defender and American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia staff lawyer Kosha Tucker said the organization is fighting for inmates to have access to medical care, hygiene products and visitation of family members.

Seven inmates have died at the jail so far this year. In response, the ACLU of Georgia filed an open records request with the sheriff’s office for more information regarding procedures within the jail.
