Idaho Inmate Sues because Prison Doesn’t Serve Lunch

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — A man who has been sentenced to death in two states is suing the kitchen supervisor of Idaho’s maximum security prison because the state no longer serves lunch to inmates on weekends.

Timothy Dunlap was sentenced to death in 1992 for killing Tonya Crane during a bank robbery in Caribou County. He has also been sentenced to death in Ohio for killing his girlfriend. The Idaho State Journal reports Dunlap filed the lawsuit in federal court last week, contending that he is losing weight and had a heart attack because of the weekend meal schedule.

Idaho inmates get three meals a day except weekends, when they get larger breakfasts and dinners and a piece of fruit at lunch. State officials say the menus meet inmates’ expected caloric needs.
