An inmate on suicide watch is escorted by correctional officers at the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility in Corcoran in a January 2009 file photo. The chief psychiatrist for California's prison system alleged in a report made public Oct. 31, 2018, that state officials have provided inaccurate or misleading information to a federal judge and inmates' attorneys, giving the false impression that the system is properly caring for mentally ill inmates. U.S. District Judge Kimberly Mueller, who oversees mental health care in California's prisons as part of an ongoing federal lawsuit, said she plans to hear public testimony from the whistleblower.
