Civil Rights Violation Due to In-Custody Suicide : Los Angeles

los angeles in custody suicideHow Jail or In-Custody Suicides Occur

For most people, being taken into custody is a stressful occurrence and not every individual is equipped to deal with it. Law enforcement and correctional officers should be trained to spot suspects and inmates in crisis and when they fail to, they put these individuals at risk.

Jail or In-Custody suicides can occur due to:
  • Failure to protect the mentally ill
  • Understaffing/failure to monitor Physical assault while in custody
  • Sexual assault while in custody
  • Undue taunting and intimidatio
  • Medication imbalance/withdrawals
  • Other forms of mental/physical/sexual abuse while in custody

To be sure, law enforcement agencies and correctional facilities will be reluctant to admit culpability following these deaths. That is why it is so critical to maintain skilled and aggressive legal counsel during this time. At Morris Law Firm, we believe that these deaths are absolutely unacceptable and will work with the affected families to not only uncover the truth about what happened to their loved one, but pursue swift justice for any wrongdoing that occurred.
