Wiccan Inmate Suing Massachusetts Department of Corrections | The Wild Hunt

A great pagan blog, The Wild Hunt, reports on the following case involving a prisoner's rights who is a practicing wiccan:



Wiccan Inmate Suing Massachusetts Department of Corrections | The Wild Hunt: A Wiccan man serving time at MCI-Norfolk since 1987 for a  triple murder  is suing the Massachusetts Department of Corrections for allegedly infringing on his religious rights. Daniel LaPlante says prison officials are interfering with his ability to practice the Wiccan religion by preventing him from obtaining specific ritual oils, herbs, teas, medallions, and a variety of cakes for his faith. He also says they are preventing him from practicing his faith in the “time, place and manner” that the Wiccan religion requires. (The Wild Hunt)
