A Texas detainee lowers the state prison system and says he was denied immediate treatment for a carnivorous bacterial infection that he fell in jail that caused him to be in shock and suffering from permanent abuse and invalidity.
Harold Millican, 37, accuses the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and Governor of Host State Failure to inflict cruel and unusual punishment by letting his wounds grow despite the grounds for help from both him and his mother.
According to a copy of his suit Retrieved from HuffPost, Millican, who served time for possession of a controlled subject, spent about one week in the Beaumont prison hospital in 201
6 for the infection because no one could transport him to a hospital.
It was not until the infection on his arm and chest caused him to go into shock and lose awareness that he was hospital on December 15 that year. His suit, filed this month, slams it as “an unreasonable time before the correct care was made for him”.
Graphic pictures shared by his attorney with HuffPost appear to show Millican’s right arm with a wound extending from his elbow to just past his wrist. His lawyer Allie Booker told HuffPost that the photos were taken in December 2016 while still in storage, but a photo seems to show him wearing civic clothes.
“They sat there looking at him,” Booker told. Houston Chronicle. “How can you let someone go through it?”
According to Booker, the infection occurred after Millican injured his arm in one case during a task. The injury did not heal properly and he developed a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection.
Jeremy Desel, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, said he can not comment in detail on the matter because of the ongoing dispute. There are some errors in Millican’s claims.
“We believe the allegations in this trial are grossly wrong. The offender received both appropriate and prompt medical care,” he said in an email to HuffPost on Tuesday.
Millicson’s trial claims that he and his mother contacted the prison and ordered several times before their hospital and expressed concern about their harm.
“They stated that the injury smelled extremely painful, was extremely painful and quickly destroyed the injured’s meat and muscle,” says the costume.
By the time he received adequate treatment, the bacteria had eaten through muscle tissue on
Millican seeks at least $ 200,000 and a jury trial.
Capture records show that Millican, whose arrest days date back to 2001, were arrested again in October to avoid arrest and sentenced to nearly 10 months in prison in November.
