The beginning of the case goes back to last summer. On July 14, 2018, 27-year-old Diana Sanchez was detained in Denver County, Colorado, in the western United States, awaiting trial in a falsified check case.
Pregnant more than eight months
She was pregnant for more than eight months and was at risk of preterm birth, all of which were known to prison health services and sheriff's agents, according to a complaint she filed on Wednesday.
It targets the city and county of Denver, the Denver Medical Center responsible for providing care at the prison, and six individuals, all of whom are accused of "completely failing their legal and moral obligations".
On July 31st at dawn, the mother-in-law woke up with contractions and warned various guards. She had then reported on her abdominal pain, then the loss of her waters, to no avail.
Everything was filmed in full
A nurse will come to examine it but she will just drag her a disposable absorbent mattress under the door of her cell, until a vehicle arrives at the prison to transport her to the hospital.
Diana Sanchez will eventually give birth to a boy, alone and unassisted, nearly six hours after the first alert, on his bunk next to the toilet in his cell. The mother and baby will only be taken to the hospital thirty minutes after birth.
For the young woman, the facts are even more intolerable that the throes of her delivery were fully filmed by a surveillance camera, extracts of which were broadcast by his lawyer to support his accusations.
