Cuyahoga County Jail guard attacked inmate, later threatened to hang him for ‘snitching’ to U.S. Marshals, unrelated lawsuit says CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A Cuyahoga County Jail guard attacked an inmate, called him a racial slur and later threatened to hang him for “snitching” to U.S. Marshals investigating conditions at the jail, according to an unrelated lawsuit filed Wednesday. The details included in the suit offer the first account of the incident involving Cpl. Christopher Little and inmate Corrione Lawrence, which is being investigated by the FBI. The details are included in a lawsuit that civil rights attorney Subodh Chandra filed Wednesday on behalf of Chantelle Glass, who Cuyahoga County Jail officers punched and pepper-sprayed after strapping her to a restraint chair.

BCSO's Criminal Investigations Division Internal Affairs, and the Public Integrity Unit are conducting an investigation into this death, according to the sheriff's office.

This is not the first death at the jail this year. On May 30, an inmate was found bleeding on the floor of his cell from an apparent stab wound. He later died from his wounds, and his cellmate was charged with capital murder in connection to the incident.

On April 18, a 63-year-old man who was taken into custody on a misdemeanor criminal trespass charge was found dead in his cell.

In March, the Texas Commission on Jail Standards released the findings of a recent inspection at the jail. Among a list of violations, the TCJS director said they found staff did not check on inmates regularly, which helps prevents suicides and escapes.
