Inmate sues jail for $4.5M over returned letter

FAIRFIELD — An ex-con with an extensive local criminal history dating back more than a decade, who is doing time for a pair of felony theft charges, has sued the Solano County jail for $4.5 million partly because he had a letter returned with 21 cents postage due.

The inmate, Adolph P. Greene, 47, filed his federal civil rights lawsuit Thursday. Greene’s lawsuit also claims his constitutional rights were violated by jail staff in May when they refused to give him two special envelopes, a pen and lined paper so that he could sue the jail. Since then Greene, who states he is indigent, has found the resources to file three local legal actions claiming he is victim of injustice.

Greene’s lawsuit claims he has suffered mental anguish and emotional stress over the display of deliberate indifference by jail staff in violating his right of confidentiality.

Since 2003, Fairfield police have arrested Greene more than 14 times. He was sent to prison in 2009 until his release in 2011. Greene was arrested in 2012 for allegedly joining an accomplice in the beating and robbery of an 84-year-old man at his North Texas Street home. Since then, Greene has been arrested seven times.

No court dates for Greene’s lawsuit have been scheduled.

    Another member of the revolving door of non justice in Solano County. So he does 2 yrs, probably got early release, then beats and robs an 84 yr old,and somehow still has time to be arrested 7 more times? How many crimes did he commit during those 7 that he was never caught for? The system isn't working, and no one seems to care to do anything about it.
