$1.8M settlement reached in Todd County inmate death
07-Dec-2018

KSTP channel five tv out of the twin cities is reporting thatTodd County agreed Wednesday to pay $1.8 million to the family of a mentally ill man who killed himself in the county jail in June 2017. A civil rights lawsuit documented how jailers repeatedly ignored signs that Brett Huber, Jr., was suicidal, and that guards went so far as to falsify jail logs to make it look like they checked on the 25-year-old at the same time he hanged himself in his cell. The lawsuit accused Todd County of violating the rights of Brett Huber, Jr., and demonstrating "deliberate indifference" for his life. In the civil complaint, lawyers say jail staff observed an earlier suicide attempt by Huber and other bizarre behavior but never sought to have him evaluated by a mental health professional. A month before Huber's death, an outside nurse practitioner wrote that he would "likely benefit from a full psychiatric evaluation," but his family says that never happened. The family of Brett Huber, Jr., says jail staff also missed an opportunity to save his life as he was preparing to hang himself. The lawsuit reveals that surveillance cameras recorded him spending several minutes fashioning a noose out of bedsheets inside his cell, but no staff attempted to stop him. Jailers are also accused of logging a check of Huber's cell at the same time he hanged himself – something the lawsuit called a "complete fabrication." The Minnesota Department of Corrections has found the Todd County jail "chronically understaffed" in the past and repeatedly cited it for following the rules to keep inmates safe.
