$4.8 Million Suit over Virginia Inmate's Death

A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against the sheriff of the Richmond, Va., City Jail over the death of an inmate from congestive heart failure in 2010. The suit, which seeks $4.8 million in damages, claims jail officials failed to provide medication or proper care to the victim, who suffered from diabetes and chronic heart problems. On the day he died, the victim begged a deputy to call a doctor, but no medical personnel arrived to examine him, the suit says. Reed Williams , Richmond Times-Dispatch 09/27/2012
