Modesto Inmate Stops Eating

An attorney representing a Stanislaus County jail inmate says his client has been on a hunger strike for more than two weeks to protest the way his jailers treat him. Authorities say it appears Jesse Edwards is losing weight, but he´s healthy and is not being treated differently from other inmates. One official says Edwards goes on such strikes periodically. He´s lost seven pounds in a month.
