deaf-prisoner-won-a-request

A deaf woman was sentenced to 120 days in prison because
of a DWI violation. It not being the first time she was in
prison, she knew what it was all about – and she successfully
convinced the state Department of Corrections to allow her
hearing ear dog to accompany her. Her argument was that since
the jail has accessibility and accommodation issues, the
hearing ear dog will help her know what is going on.
