When T.R. was arrested on a misdemeanor charge near Gainesville, Florida, the local jail was aware that the 19-year-old woman was pregnant. She began having severe abdominal pain, but the jail authorities merely placed her in an isolation cell so her cries of pain could not be heard.
She was found unresponsive by morning, dead of an ectopic pregnancy. The Soloway Law Firm recovered a settlement for T.R.’s mother of $600,000 while the case was on federal court appeal in Atlanta, Georgia.
