U.S. District Magistrate Judge Jacob Hagopian recently decided against preaching inmate Wesley Spratt, ruling that maintaining a safe prison is a valid reason to violate Spratt's religious liberty. Although prison officials never presented evidence that Spratt's preaching had caused any trouble, Hagopian said the warden can act "preemptively" by preventing him from preaching.
