A US former convict is suing for unspecified damages after prison nurse Judith Lovelace's tender ministrations provoked a 55-hour erection which left his todger "irreparably injured", the New York Post reports.

Career crim Dawud Yaduallah, formerly David Hanley, claims the unsolicited hardening happened in March 2006 at the Downstate Correctional Facility in Fishkill, New York. He was serving time on an assault conviction when Lovelace allegedly upped his dose of anti-psychotic drug Seroquel* by 25 per cent.

Cue three days of persistent and painful erections, during which the priapic jailbird presented himself at the infirmary, to be dismissed by Lovelace with the advice he apply ice to his hideously empurpled member. Hospital treatment finally subdued his staff.

Yaduallah was parolled in September last year, and has presented his case in Manhattan federal court protesting Lovelace's "cruel and uncivilized conduct". He claims to have suffered "severe damage to his penis, including erectile dysfunction, inability to ejaculate and pain during sexual intercourse".

The plaintiff further insists he needs a penile prosthesis "to possibly restore some sexual function" while his condition has "caused difficulty in his marriage".

Yaduallah's lawyer, Elmer Keach III, said: "The medical literature is clear that if you see a doctor within 24 hours, you generally won't have any permanent damage. He didn't see a doctor for over two days."

Lovelace retired from the prison system in 2007, and couldn't be reached for comment. ®
