Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
according to the fifth amendment to court access, the inmates have a right to an attorney where they can have a legal representative to defend them in the courts,also the inmates tend to have the right to not being termed as guilty until proven(Brezina, 2011).
if the above situation were take to court, i think the ruling would be in favor of the inmates where they might get termed as being not guilty and this is due to lack of sufficient evidence by the prosecution side.
the request for legal supplies becomes unreasonable when the inmate get termed as not guilty since they might not need any legal representation as they get termed as being clean with no arrest warrants upon them(Lively & Weaver, 2006)
