Ken McGill: Read lawsuit of inmate who suffered stroke in jail, wasn't treated for 24 hours

On September 17, 2012, as detailed in this week's cover story, "Life Sentence," Ken McGill suffered a stroke while incarcerated at Jefferson County Detention Facility for a DUI, and he told everyone he could about it. In response, he was forced to spend the night on the floor of solitary confinement and medical personnel working for Correctional Healthcare Companies (CHC), a Greenwood Village-based company that manages the jail's medical operation, waited more than 24 hours before taking him to the hospital.

Now, McGill says he's permanently disabled, and is suing Jefferson County and CHC. Read the lawsuit below.
