Inmate Transported to Hospital After Jumping

Thursday, 11 January 2018

An inmate was taken to the hospital this afternoon after jumping from a top tier inside the Roger D. Wilson Detention Facility. According to the initial investigation, a female inmate attempted to jump from a top tier inside the facility around 12:48 p.m. An officer tried to prevent the jump and held onto her as she hung over the side, but she jerked free and fell. Another officer had enough time to place a mat on the floor to pad her fall. The inmate was transported to the hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
