Default Death in Arkansas Prison

Wrightsville, AR
State Prison Guard Fired After Inmate's Death

APRIL 22, 2005

WRIGHTSVILLE, AR - A guard at the state prison system's Wrightsville Unit has been fired after the death of an inmate in February.

Prison officials say 28-year-old Victor Wright complained of not feeling well after returning from a work detail and went to the infirmary, where he collapsed and died.

Prison spokeswoman Dina Tyler said a sergeant who led the work detail did not provide adequate water breaks and hurried the convicts back from the fields. The prisoners had been clearing weeds and chopping grass. Tyler said the sergeant violated regulations and then lied about his violations when questioned.

The sergeant was not named because he has until Tuesday to appeal his dismissal.

This is so sad and makes me so angry! This was so preventable - thank goodness that guard was fired. Is there any talk of him being charged with anything?

If that's not what happened ... it sounds like the gaurd should be charged with negligent homicide. What did happen?
