Wednesday, January 09 2013

Five Idaho inmates are suing some of the nation's top liquor and wine companies for $1 billion, claiming alcohol led them to commit the crimes for which they are doing time.
 
Keith Allen Brown, Steven Thompson, Woodrow Grant, Cory Baugh and Jeremy Brown filed a lawsuit in Boise's U.S. District Court last month naming eight defendants, including Anheuser-Busch, Coors, Miller Brewing and American Brands, the owner of Jim Beam whiskey. All of the prisoners claim that alcohol led them to their crimes, which range from manslaughter to grand theft.  They further claim that they should have been warned of the beverages' addictive nature
.
"If I was not an alcoholic, the shooting would never have happened," Jeremy Brown said in his affidavit. Brown, 34, is serving a 20- to 30-year sentence for a 2001 shooting that seriously injured a man. "I have spent a great deal of that time in prison because of situations that have arose because of people being drunk, or because of situations in which alcohol played a major role.  At no time in my life, prior to me becoming an alcoholic, was I ever informed that alcohol was habit forming and addictive."
 
The inmates do not have an attorney.
