Schneider claims she was put in solitary confinement for two weeks for having a hair tie. She says she received the tie from the jail's nurse so she could keep her hair off her neck, where she had an infection from a possible centipede bite.
Schneider has been in prison since her arrest nearly a year ago. She faces trial in February on charges she and her physician husband operated a so-called pill mill in Haysville.
A hearing is scheduled for next Monday on the abuse allegations.
