In 1972, inmate Michael V. Costello filed the now famous Costello vs. Wainwright lawsuit which addressed issues of overcrowding, sanitation, food and health care in prisons. It would be 21 years before the cases were settled. Costello remains in prison with a life sentence. Learn more on The History of Corrections at www.dc.state.fl.us/oth/timeline/1970-1975.html.
