GRAND RAPIDS (WWJ/AP) - An inmate at a Grand Rapids jail is suing for the right to be served kosher meals, saying he’s lost 30 pounds while eating only greens, bread and cereal.
Bradley Sleighter said even those meals probably are unclean under his Jewish faith because the trays are exposed to meat. He’s been in the Kent County jail since January, serving a nine-month sentence for retail fraud.
Kent County Undersheriff Jon Hess said the jail does not provide a special meal based on inmates’ religious beliefs.
