During my stay in Upshur County Jail I made a written request almost daily to see the nurse for over one month. My request was always denied. If I had not already had a scheduled appointment to see my hematologist which they could not deny me to attend I would have died. After over 2 months of detention the Upshur County Jail released me early while I was cuffed and leg chain to a hospital bed at ETMC in Tyler during my second Emergency Transfusion during my incarceration due to high medical bills that the jail was held responsible to pay only to leave me to find my own way back to Gilmer and the storage building I now call home.
So I say PISS on Upshur County Jail and Sheriff Betterton.
