1985 Press Photo John Staszak Signs to Interpreter in Interview about jailing

Description

"I was scared," said John Staszak, who talked to a reporter through a sign-language interpreter. Staszak also cannot speak. It was the second time in five months that the young man had been locked in a mental ward at the Milwaukee County Mental Health Complex without being provided a certified interpreter. (Wisconsin).
