An inmate at the Dona Ana County Detention Center attempted suicide by using part of his clothing and a hook in his cell, reported the Las Cruces Sun-News.

Jail can be a volatile place. Many people in jail suffer from mental illness like depression and addiction. And the jail has the legal responsibility to take reasonable steps to care for people in its custody. That obligation includes protecting people with mental illness.

We hope that this man will recover and that the jail will review its policies and take steps to prevent this type of tragedy.

If you need help from a lawyer for a loved one in the detention center. whether you need a criminal defense attorney or a civil rights attorney, you can call McGraw & Strickland at: (575) 323-1529.
