Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols is asking for a court-appointed lawyer to help him with a lawsuit complaining about the food he gets in prison.
Nichols claims in his suit that the federal Supermax prison in
Colorado is causing him to "sin against God" because he doesn't
get enough whole grains and fresh food.
Nichols asked for the legal aid in a document addressed to a
federal judge in Denver on Monday.
Amy Padden of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Denver did not
immediately respond to a call seeking comment Tuesday about the
suit Nichols filed in March.
Nichols is serving life for conspiracy and involuntary
manslaughter in the 1995 federal building bombing that killed 168
people. Timothy McVeigh was convicted of murder and executed.
