Illinois: Settlement for Man Denied HIV Drugs in Jail
August 15, 2013
On August 14, the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois announced that the Bureau County, Ill., Sheriff's Office had reached a settlement with a Chicago man who charged in a lawsuit filed last year that jail officials prevented him from taking his prescribed HIV medications for a week while he was held in a Princeton jail. In the agreement filed in federal court in Peoria, the sheriff's office agreed to pay the individual $20,000 and to conduct mandatory training for jail staff.
