Jail Responsible For Inmate’s Surgery

The Alpena County Jail is being held responsible for injuries that an inmate received prior to his arrival.

According to Sheriff Kieliszewski, the suspect was in a fight before being arrested.

“He got some pretty nasty facial injuries and a broken nose and other injuries and because of that he has to have surgery,” said Kieliszewski.

Since the inmate is in custody of Alpena County, the county is responsible for the cost of the surgery as well as follow up procedures or medical treatment, as long as he remains in the jail.

The suspect is facing multiple charges and allegedly stole a vehicle. His name has not been released.
