Remember the story Taser Happy Sangamon County Sheriffs Deupty Travis Koester?? – Tamara Skube Lawsuit? Well that little incident cost the Tax Payers of Sangamon County $150,000 in a settlement!
Back on our First Facebook Page (before the website happened) we spoke about an Inmate who died in the Sangamon County Jail. His name was Maurice L. Burris. Burris, 50, collapsed in the jail Dec. 5, 2007. He died of complications from a ruptured bowel on Dec. 12, 2007 at St. John’s Hospital. He had been jailed Nov. 24, 2007, after an alleged stalking incident involving a former girlfriend.
Mr. Burris’ death cost the Tax Payers of Sangamon County $40,000.
This surely isn’t the end of these costly lawsuits, take a look at SCSO Previous Administration and New Administration Filled With Problems.
Can we please get things under control at the Sheriff’s Office?
