“Because Ms. Jones gave birth prematurely, due to LCSO’s deliberate indifference, the baby was unable to fully develop full audiological function, resulting in complete deafness in one ear and only thirty percent function in the other.”

After the baby’s birth, a male officer was assigned to remain in her hospital room until she was taken back to the jail eighteen hours later, depriving Jones of the chance to bond with her daughter. She was also denied the ability to express breast milk.
