WASHINGTON, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Full Disclosure Network® known as "the news behind the news" is releasing an exclusive report available at and videos here revealing the county jail monitors and the extraordinary plight of prominent Anti-Trust Attorney Richard I. Fine who is being held in contempt of court and  waging a fight to win his freedom from solitary "coercive confinement" in the L.A. County Central Men's Jail.  Fine was taken into custody after he attempted to disqualify Superior Court Judge David Yaffe for having taken illegal payments from L. A. County, a party involved the case, and was sentenced on March 4, 2009 "indefinitely," without bail, a release date or a hearing date.  


From this jail cell interview video Fine describes unusual court procedures he encountered that prompted him to file the "Inmate Complaint" on January 6, 2009, naming Sheriff Leroy Baca for Unlawful Imprisonment. Despite having a PhD in international law and serving as an Anti Trust attorney with the Department of Justice in Washington D.C., Fine's petitions for Writ of Habeas Corpus have been repeatedly denied by Federal Judges. Watch video here:


Problems have persisted despite the fact the County of  Los Angeles spends millions of dollars each year to fund jail monitoring and oversight operations to prevent inmate abuse. Featured in this 5 min Full Disclosure Video  ( are the contractors who monitor county jails, ACLU, Merrick Bobb's PARC (Police Assessment Resource Center) and the LASD Office of Independent Review (OIR) as they describe their role.  Richard Fine claims he has never been contacted by the jail monitors during his illegal solitary confinement.
