Another inmate and let jail staff know the next day

Instead of helping Lance, the suit claims, jail officials mocked him and did not transport him to a local hospital until four days after he swallowed the pill.

When the hospital indicated Lance needed to be transferred over to a urologist’s office for treatment, he was returned to the jail and was arranged to be released on his own recognizance due to “medical issues,” Tulsa World reported.

The lawsuit names police, government and medical individuals.

Lance is facing a misdemeanor charge of breaking and entering a dwelling without permission in a separate criminal case.

Dustin Lance claims in a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Muskogee that he suffered permanent injury in December 2016 when Pittsburg County jail officials ignored his pleas for medical help, Tulsa World reported.

Lance claims in the lawsuit that he took a pill offered to him by another inmate and let jail staff know the next day that he was reeling from “unbearable pain” being caused by the erection.

Vega, who was 99 at the time of her death, was charged $958 on what would have been her 100th birthday. Carmen Fernandez, a relative, said she saw the charge and fee when she went to close the woman’s account, the news outlet reported.


“How are they going to charge a dead person?” Fernandez told The Sun Sentinel. “How is she going to pay that? I was enraged. They let her die and then they bill her. This was someone who was like a mother to me.”
