"Michigan jail inmate Kyle Richards, 21, has filed a federal lawsuit claiming that authorities are violating his civil rights by denying him access to pornography behind bars," reports the website of TV station KWTX in Waco, Texas.

Says the story, "Michigan jail inmate Kyle Richards, 21, has filed a federal lawsuit claiming that authorities are violating his civil rights by denying him access to pornography behind bars."

The article continues, "He filed a five-page, handwritten suit June 10 in U.S. District Court in Detroit against Michigan and Gov. Rick Snyder in which he says the denial of his request for erotic materials is cruel and unusual punishment. He wrote that the lack of pornographic material subjects him to a ‘poor standard of living’ and ‘both sexual and sensory deprivation.’ "

Inmate Richards is being "held in the Macomb County Jail in a bank robbery case, in which he entered a guilty plea," the story notes.
