Jail Officials Face Lawsuit

The lawsuits claim two inmates didn't get the medical help they needed despite repeated pleas to be taken to a hospital.

The Lexington Herald reports the alleged negligence led to the death of an inmate in Pike County and permanent injuries to another in Letcher County.
