I'm not quite sure what your question is, but the AG is the chief legal officer of the state, and investigates all possible statewide crimes, consumer fraud, and potential misdeeds that occur in jail.

Since I don't know who is being investigated or for whst, I'm unable to give you any specific guidance.

I think you need to rephrase your question. It does not make sense (at least to me).

The contents of this post do not establish an attorney-client relationship. Any comments made in this post are general in nature and may not apply to the specific facts and law of your case.


Perhaps you should ask the Attorney Generals Office and/ or send them a Freedpm of Informatipn request.

There is no way to answer you qwuestion. We have no idea what is and is not being investigated or why.


The family should retain a civil rights attorney to investigate the death. I personally would tell the AG to fly a kite, as these morons don't scare me.
