Inmate Reidic Jackson has filed suit against the Mark Stiles Unit, a state prison, and its property officer, Anita Breaux, alleging his belongings were not transferred with him.

Representing himself, Jackson filed the suit May 3 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to his hand-written suit, when Jackson was transferred to the William Clements Unit from the Mark Stiles Unit his property was not transferred with him and investigators claimed there was no inventory in his record.

The suit does not state what property was taken from him but does allege the value of the loss totals $7,500.

Jackson alleges his constitutional rights were violated when his property was taken without notice.

He is suing for actual damages.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. E189-936
