First; I am curious how an inmate could learn of this man’s crime without the knowledge of those charged with this mans safety. This is sloppy at best, and complicit in this man’s murder at worst; I’m inclined to go with the worst scenario because this is not the first time some jailer has committed murder using an inmate as the murder weapon, and then feigning ignorance. Second; how stupid are the authorities? You mean to tell me they haven’t learned that if you mix someone with a 290 conviction with the general population the end result is never good!!!… Read more »

Personal experience here. My first night in jail for allegations (awaiting trial), a guard enjoyed announcing to a series of mainline inmates that I was there for a sex crime against a minor. She seemed euphoric as she repeated it several times for all to hear. I don’t know what her goal was, but she certainly increased the danger of attack against me. I would not be surprised if this man was deliberately placed with his murderer and his murderer being informed immediately about the sex offender status of his cellmate. Hopefully, this lawsuit will be hugely successful and send… Read more »

I wonder if this is against the sheriff’s department policy on inmate protection?

Although it would be hard to prove her statement without corroborating witnesses, it certainly might help fix any policies that were not adhered to. I wonder if a civil suit would be possible, but again, how strong is the case?

I would document it in a letter to the judge presiding over your case. The sheriff has the responsibility to keep ALL inmates safe and this action is clearly conspiracy to harass or harm you (IMHO).

Hi Max; Her goal was to harm you; possibly/probably kill you using main line inmates as her weapon. Very tidy. She would look white as snow and have an alibi. In effect, she was acting as judge, jury and executioner because she is a lower life form that would have you killed, even though your charges were only allegations at that point. I’d be interested to hear how the rest of your first night went, as well as thew rest of your stay if possible.

This was premeditated murder. The guards should be prosecuted.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
