Inmate paralyzed in escape attempt sues

SCRANTON — An inmate paralyzed in a daring prison escape is suing the warden and other county officials over his post-accident care.

Scott Bolton, 44, was paralyzed from the waist down in October 2003 when he fell about 50 feet from a seventh- floor window.

Bolton, a suspected thief of all-terrain vehicles, and murder suspect Hugo Selenski were trying to escape from the Luzerne County Correctional Facility using a rope made of bed sheets. Bolton was quickly captured after his fall to a lower roof, while Selenski fled but surrendered after a three-day manhunt.

Bolton, now serving an 8-1/2 to 17-1/2-year state sentence, claims in the federal suit filed Wednesday that county prison employees mistreated him afterward. Acting as his own attorney in filing the suit, he cites two instances in which he says he was injured while staff tried to help him shower.

We had a lot of good movies:

  • Escape from Alcatraz
  • Green Mile
  • Shawshank Redemption
  • The Last Castle

Don’t convicts have any role models anymore? I don’t remember any of them botching the escape quite so badly or later suing because of mistreatment while staff had to shower them. Perhaps they would have benefited from having better parents who could teach them right and wrong and how to behave like a man while in prison.

Aside from that…
