Federal lawsuit against Bureau County
PRINCETON — A federal lawsuit claiming a Chicago man received improper medical care while an inmate at the Bureau County Jail has been forwarded to the Bureau County State's Attorney's office.
Bureau County Sheriff John Thompson said he received a copy of the lawsuit on Tuesday. The lawsuit was filed earlier this month by Arick Buckles, 40, of Chicago in the U.S. District Court in Peoria. Buckles claimed his prescription medications were repeatedly denied while he was in the county jail in the fall of 2010.
Thompson said he has given the lawsuit to Bureau County State's Attorney Patrick Herrmann. He (Thompson) has absolute faith in the judicial system that it will see that some people will try to take advantage of any opportunity. He has confidence the judicial system will prevail appropriately, the sheriff said.
