Candler Sheriff Facing Suicide Law Suit
Friday, 02 August 2013

August 2--  The sheriff of Candler County and one of his staff members are being sued by the family of a woman who hung herself in the county jail two years ago.

According to The Metter Advertiser,  Sheriff Homer Bell and Robbie Youngblood are accused of negligence in the death of Kimberly Nicole Clements.

The federal lawsuit claims Sheriff Bell was indifferent and took no precautionary action when he was told Clements was threatening to kill herself.

Vidalia attorney Wilson Smith is one of the attorneys representing the family.
