Man Convicted of Killing His Prom Date is Suing DOC Over Prison Medical Care

Christopher Plaskon, convicted in the 2014 prom day killing of Milford teen Maren Sanchez, filed a lawsuit this month against the state Department of Correction, alleging they have failed to address his severe stomach ailments.

Plaskon, 4 1/2 years into a 25-year sentence for murder, seeks $300,000 in damages for multiple claims of deliberate indifference on the part of the correction commissioner, the warden of McDougall-Walker Correctional Institution, and medical staff.

The handwritten 23-page suit outlines the months that Plaskon says he struggled to get treatment for severe and, at times debilitating, stomach problems that started in November 2018.

Plaskon, who is representing himself in the suit filed on Jan. 8, contends that he has suffered from severe stomach and abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, and severe nausea, which has led to “significant weight loss, significant loss of appetite, significant loss of physical endurance, significant loss of physical strength and insomnia.”
