“On or around the end of March 2022, another inmate filed a lawsuit alleging that Mr. Devil possessed cone pipes and pipe bombs,” his legal team wrote. “In response, the corrections officer conducted a search of the entire dormitory, at which point Mr. Devil was found with one (1) writing instrument and chips. However, another inmate in the dormitory was found in possession of shins, prescription drugs and other contraband.”

“Although Mr Demons did not have any relationship with this prisoner, Mr Demons and his attorneys had customary restrictions on visits due to the discovery of contraband owned by a third party inmate. More than five (5) months have passed, which is more than enough time for Mr. Demons’ residence to make a decision on the allegations made in the complaint. “
