FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A pregnant Florida woman was left alone in a jail cell for nearly seven hours after asking for help and eventually gave birth alone, her attorney said Friday.
Public defender Howard Finkelstein demanded an immediate review of medical and isolation practices in a letter to Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony.
“I am incensed and heartbroken after learning that a mentally ill client was forced to deliver her child alone in a jail cell,” Finkelstein wrote. https://canoe.com/news/world/attorney-florida-woman-left-alone-in-jail-cell-while-giving-birth
If only she was a domestic pet or farm animal instead of a Black woman, someone would have been in that cell with her.
