NC: Guilford County investigating jail inmate’s in-custody death

[wxii12.com – 6/25/20]

GREENSBORO, N.C. —A Greensboro man’s death is under investigation after he died in custody at the Guilford County Detention Center Tuesday morning.

Guilford County Sheriff Danny Rogers said Jeffery Johnson, 61, died as the result of a lengthy and chronic medical condition at the Greensboro facility at about 10:20 a.m.

Johnson was arrested by the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office on May 14 and charged with two counts of failure to register as a sex offender.

Authorities said Johnson was processed and then taken to the Greensboro Detention Center where he was brought before a magistrate for his initial appearance. The magistrate found probable cause for his charges and committed Johnson to the custody of the Sheriff’s Office in lieu of $25,000 bail.

At about 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, jail medical staff said they observed that Johnson was in failing health and rendered care to him. The decision was made to take Johnson to the hospital for further treatment.

While waiting for EMS to arrive to make the transport, Johnson was pronounced dead by the jail’s medical doctor.

I’m a bit confused. One of his crimes was “traveling by interstate commerce.” What does that even mean? I’m asking cause I live in in NC but sometimes have to work in SC for a few hours of the day. I always return home to NC each night where I’m registered. Is that against the law?

Also confused. 1. How/why was he charged with TWO FTRs? 2. I didn’t see anything about “traveling by interstate commerce.” What exactly is that and why is it a crime (or is it merely a status offense)?

Regardless, if he had chronic medical conditions (which the jail probably refused to address) severe enough to succumb to COVID, it’s pretty unlikely that he was any kind of threat.

Just wanted to say that the link is wrong. It links to an article about the man who created the Pride flag.
