Another waste of time and money from a greedy family looking to cash in. Give it up, this case has absolutely no merit whatsoever.

If this is his widow, why does she have a different last name? Why doesn't she go by Levert as her last name?

Let's see...he's in jail because he failed to pay Child Support...any chance it is the one & same ex-wife filing this suit who put him in jail in the first place ....just asking ?

I am so sorry to hear of this mistreatment. It is certainly "not hard" to believe. I will fervently be in prayer in hopes that justice will be granted. They knew he needed this medication and then to restrain him would also restrain his proper breathing because they had to be aware of his history of having anxiety! God grant the family peace~

WHy didn't he pay his child support? Looks like he should of. However, hindsight is always 20/20

If people would start doing what's right in the first place, they wouldn't end up in jail.

Nah, that's too easy a solution. It would never work...

SEAN LEVERT was MURDERED by YOUR county jail staff who were hands on complicit denying SEAN LEVERT's anxiety meds that he brought to jail with him and then laughed all the while they tortured him further by placing him in restraints to impair his breathing and KILLING HIM. They should ALL be prosecuted criminally for MURDER, found guilty and given life without parole ! NO NEGLIGENT HOMICIDE (B.S.) Murder One - IF the local D.A. is in bed politically with the powers that be who are lined up against this civil lawsuit you could demand that all be prosecuted under the Federal Civil Rights statute (18 U.S.C. 241, 242) ASAP. Citizens should write with copies of this newspaper article to WAN KIM, Esq. Dpty. A.G., U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division CRIMINAL SECTION, 950 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20530
and scream " SHERIFF Dept. MURDERed Sean Levert !!!"

The loss of Sean is truly sad.I had the plessure of meeting Sean years ago he seemed like a nice person.all of this could have been avoided if he would have paid his child support.The jail should have a log on when his meds were given to him and if theres nothing in the log. WELL LOOKS BAD

I'm the inmate that broke the whole story and risked putting my life on the line. You would think they after being rewarded almost 4 million dollars that they would say thank you or send me a postcard saying something. But No!!! Not one single call from the family, only guards treating me like shit whenever I step one foot in there. Thanks You Sincerely Angelo McKenzie. Levert Family""
