Guy gets stopped for a DUI in NM, put in solitary confinement. For 2 years! They literally locked him up and threw away the key.
Just wound up with a $22M judgment against the county.
Dona Ana County officials were tight-lipped about the case, refusing to answer questions about whether any jail employees were reprimanded or fired over Slevin's treatment.
"We do not discuss personnel issues," Jess Williams, Dona Ana County's public information director, told msnbc.com on Wednesday.
yeah, i bet you got nothing to say Mr. Williams...hard to believe this stuff still goes on in this country.
