GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- A Michigan inmate who wasn't allowed to attend Wiccan ceremonies while he was confined for misconduct says prison officials violated his constitutional rights. Mario Sentelle Cavin, who is incarcerated for second-degree murder, is suing Michigan Department of Corrections Director Daniel Heyns and Chippewa Correctional Facility Warden Jeffrey Woods. He represents himself in the lawsuit he recently filed in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids. Cavin is seeking $12,000 in damages. In 2000, Cavin was sentenced to 37 to 62 years in prison for two convictions each of second-degree murder and felony firearms in Lake County, according to Department of Corrections records.
