    Inmate Forgotten, Goes Foodless For 2 Days

    http://www.newsnet5.com/news/15061167/detail.html


    INDIANAPOLIS -- A sheriff's deputy was fired and two others were punished because an inmate was inadvertently left in a court holding cell without food for two days, authorities said Monday.

    The inmate, James Logan, was put into a holding cell at the City-County Building after being sentenced in court to two years of incarceration on drug charges, WRTV-TV in Indianapolis reported.

    At the end of the day, deputies were supposed to return him to jail, but he was forgotten, police said.

    "(A deputy) told me that he was going to come back and get me, but he never came back," Logan told reporters Monday evening.

    Logan stayed in the cell alone and foodless until about 4 p.m. Sunday, when a deputy went to the building to retrieve something and noticed him, police said.

    Logan was without food for about 50 hours, but he did have access to a toilet and a drinking fountain, authorities said.

    "No blankets. It was cold," Logan said.

    Court security Deputy Tucker Parker was fired and court security Deputy Richard Edgemont was suspended for two days because of the incident. Lt. James Wampler was demoted to sergeant and suspended for 10 days, the television station reported.

    Police said Wampler was the supervisor on duty and didn't check the cell before leaving on Friday.

    Logan was convicted of cocaine possession, cocaine dealing and resisting law enforcement.
