Reinstated Paramedic Sues Nye County & Sheriff DeMeo

“Who Is John Galt?”

In the two years since he was arrested and accused of letting an elderly patient die, paramedic Carrol L. Meeks has won a clean slate from state regulators and got his job back with the Pahrump Valley Fire-Rescue Service.

Now he is going on the offensive. Meeks has filed a civil lawsuit against Pahrump, the fire-rescue service, the Nye County Sheriff's Office, and several of its officers, including Sheriff Tony DeMeo. He also is speaking publicly about the case for the first time. Authorities accused the men of leaving Wendler to die.

Meeks and his lawsuit offer a very different account.

The two men had their state licenses suspended in May 2007. Fernandes, who did not appeal the disciplinary action, got his license back after six months. Meeks successfully petitioned to have his suspension overturned and erased from his record in October 2007.

The story of their arrests received extensive coverage in Southern Nevada, and it was shocking and unique enough to get picked up nationally.

"There was ample evidence to bring charges", Sheriff DeMeo said. To date, however, neither Fernandes nor Meeks has been formally charged. According to DeMeo, prosecutors have another year to act before the statute of limitations runs out on the case. A message left for Nye County District Attorney Bob Beckett was not immediately returned.
