Man Spends 2 Years In Jail For Drunk Driving Arrest; Never Sees A Judge

Some days, I have trouble believing this type of thing can happen in the United States of America. Many of you have probably heard the story already. Last week, a man won $22 million from a jury due to his treatment in New Mexico’s Dona Ana County jail. Not only did he have to pull one of his own teeth, but fungus grew under his skin! Apparently, he was ignored so much that his toe nails grew so long that they curled around his feet. He was arrested in 2005 and thrown in jail for two years; without a trial. In fact, he never even saw a Judge. How does this happen in our Country? To make matters worse, the county says it will appeal the jury verdict. How awful.
