Construction and population[edit] The construction of the Men's Central Jail was finished in 1963. The original building was designed to house 3,323 inmates.[10] In 1976, an addition was added to the structure at the cost of $35 million,[11] and by December 1990, inmate capacity was 5,276.[12] Men's Central Jail has severe overcrowding.[13][14][15] In June 2015, the inmate population was about 17,000[1] and in March 1997, the inmate population was about 13,000.[16] Notable inmates[edit] Chris Brown, recording artist[17] Suge Knight[18][19] Todd Bridges, actor, Diff'rent Strokes[20] Sean Penn, actor[21] Kelsey Grammer, actor[22][23] Richard Pryor, comedian[22] Tommy Lee, Mötley Crüe's drummer[22] Scott Weiland[22] Erik Menendez[23] Richard Ramirez[22] O.J.

Services[edit] Men’s Central Jail provides some services to its inmates. Inmates can attend self-help classes on domestic violence, alcohol abuse, and substance abuse. Religious services are provided to inmates in the wake of several ACLU lawsuits.[27][28] Select inmates now (2004) can earn a GED while incarcerated.[29]


Violence and lawsuits[edit] The ACLU has sued Men's Central Jail for major civil rights violations.[30][31][32][33][34] The United States Department of Justice has also sued the Men's Central Jail.[35][36][37][38] In 2013, federal prosecutors charged 18 Sheriff's Officers with excessive use of force.[39][40][41][42] In June 2015, Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputies were found guilty of beating a handcuffed man at the Men's Central Jail.[43][44][45][46]
