This investigation began after the death of an inmate at Mobile Metro Jail. A man who was arrested on a misdemeanor was held for 15 days without seeing an attorney or a judge. He later died in his cell from a bacterial infection; at least eight hours had passed before jail staff noticed his body. A review of the sheriff's department's internal affairs report showed that 33 jail employees had violated standard operating procedures while the man was incarcerated.
