Trial to decide compensation for inmate injected with drugs

A trial is set to begin next week to decide whether Connecticut should compensate an inmate after prison doctors injected him with psychotropic drugs against his will.



A judge already ruled that the prison's doctors violated Kacey Lewis' rights.



Lewis says he is not mentally ill and will be representing himself at trial.



He's serving a 15-year sentence for assaulting and kidnapping his girlfriend.
