HSRR Client Who Settled His Case With the County Was One of the Inmates Beaten by Sheriff's Deputy Named in Recent Indictments

In light of federal indictments against 18 L.A. County Sheriff's Department employees, past cases of inmate abuse are back in the spotlight.

Hadsell Stormer Richardson & Renick LLP represented Michael Holguin in a lawsuit against the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and several individual Sheriff's Department employees for civil rights violations while Mr. Holguin was in custody at Men's Central Jail in October 2009.

When Mr. Holguin complained about being repeatedly denied a shower, L.A. County Sheriff's Department deputies retaliated against Mr. Holguin by removing him from his cell with his hands cuffed behind his back and striking him repeatedly over the head and legs.  Mr. Holguin suffered serious injuries requiring stitches to his head and microscopic surgery to his leg.

Mr. Holguin's case settled in March, 2013.

Several news outlets have covered Mr. Holguin's case as a part of the inquiry into a pattern of excessive force by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies and custody assistants.  See:
