Pris­ons res­o­lute on HIV pol­icy

Los Angeles Times - - The Nation - — times wire re­ports

State prison of­fi­cials say they have no plans to stop seg­re­gat­ing HIV-pos­i­tive in­mates de­spite the threat of a law­suit by the Jus­tice Depart­ment.

The state faces a Wed­nes­day dead­line to change the prac­tice, which prison of­fi­cials say is best for in­mates and prison em­ploy­ees.

More than 400 HIV-pos­i­tive in­mates are housed to­gether at max­i­mum-se­cu­rity pris­ons in South Carolina.
