Civil Rights Attorney: Lane County Jail Murder Inmate Suicide

07.12.2015

An Arnold Law attorney was interviewed by KVAL News regarding the recent inmate suicide of accused aggravated murderer Jeremy Daniel Ringquist. Arnold Law discusses how state law regarding prisons requires unobstructed observations of known suicide risks in 15-minute intervals.

In the case of Jeremy Rinquist he was apparently lodged at the jail originally with self-inflicted wounds and was observed hourly. One common way for an inmate suicide is to wrap clothing or bedding around one’s neck while lying face down and letting gravity tighten the ligature. Unconsciousness soon follows, then death. This is a possible civil rights violation.
