(CBS) — The Cook County Sheriff’s office has concluded it was a problem with the system — and not with staff — that left a jail visitor trapped in a room for 32 hours last month.
WBBM’s Steve Miller reports.
Trapped inside a small visiting room, 51-year-old Farad Polk says he pounded on the door. But there he stayed for 32 hours. Until he set off the fire sprinklers to get noticed.
Cook County Jail Executive Director Cara Smith says the sheriff’s office did an “exhaustive review.”
