A federal jury awarded $975,000 to a mentally ill homeless woman who gave birth alone in a jail cell. In the lawsuit, Plaintiff claimed that her constitutional rights were violated when jail officials refused to provide her medical care for her pregnancy. As a result, Plaintiff had to give birth without medical assistance. The State argued that they refused to provide medical care because they thought Plaintiff was “pretending” to have a baby.
