Belated news release from Lake County Sheriff's Office:

A 48-year-old Leesburg man recently became ill at the Lake County Jail and later died at a local hospital, a sheriff's department spokesman John Herrell said. Michael Ray Green, 34541 S. Haines Creek Road, was arrested on Aug. 18 and charged with violating his probation. Four days later, on Aug. 22, Green was found "unresponsive" in the cell he was placed in, which is used for people having withdrawals, and he was transported to the hospital, according to Lt. John Herrell, PIO for the sheriff's department. Green died at the hospital on Aug. 23.

Herrell said Wednesday the Medical Examiner's Office in Leesburg has yet to determine the cause of Green's death, "but it is very possible that he died from an underlying medical issue."

“Herrell also said Green was not an inmate at the time of his death since he was credited for time served and released from jail in order to get medical attention.” Green has been in jail several times over the last 13 years -- in 2010 for battery, in 2009 for violating his probation on a DUI charge, and in 1998 for domestic violence, records show.

However, bookings since 5/28/2000 show – he was in Lake County Jail from 11/7/2010 to 11/23/2010. Arrested for violation of probation on 8/18/2011 and released “unresponsive” on 8/22/2011 at 1:59:32 PM. A total of 20 days spent in the LCJ in the last 11 years!

Not quite the criminal the Sheriff’s Public Information Officer John Herrell would have you believe!

Insiders at the jail say Michael Green was actually found “unresponsive” by the oncoming shift at head count for shift change in the early morning hours of August 22. 2011 – According to the log no entry was made that anyone had checked on Mr. Green since midnight even though they had placed him in a cell which is used for people having withdrawals!

Now we have yet another cover up in progress! Once again they bring the judicial system into the cover up instead of just telling the truth! Another family has lost a loved one to this corrupt system and even worse they try to mutilate the character of the lost loved one!

This death begs for a full scale independent investigation of the management of the Lake County Jail. Not another manipulation of covering up the cover ups by friends and insiders !

Can you believe the sheriff called him a former inmate? They took him before the judge by a recorded video and had Judge Baxley release him time served after he had already been sent to the hospital. Just a few weeks ago his sister also died. When the system destroys one life sometimes it destroys dozens of loved ones also. They don't care, the system don't humanize anyone anymore we are all just numbers.

They left Mike unattended from around midnight until the new shift come on around 6 AM and found him. I'm sure they flushed that records book down the drain immediately. God Bless Ms Green.
