Was Oregon Prisoner Denied Early Release Because of His Outspoken Christian Faith?

Was an Oregon prisoner forced to remain in jail because of his Christian faith? An attorney alleges it really did happen.

Pacific Justice Institute has filed suit in federal district court in Oregon on behalf of now-former state prisoner Timothy Krueger.

Krueger, who serving a two-year sentence for driving on a revoked license, was expecting an early release due to good behavior.

PJI alleges the inmate ran into trouble with a counselor over his outspoken Christian faith, and his certificate and a medallion were later taken away. He had to remain in jail after it was recommended that he remain behind bars.

The lawsuit was filed against New Directions Northwest (NDN), the private company that runs the program Krueger participated in, and the Oregon Department of Corrections.
