DocumentFragment_4133582GREGG COUNTY — A former Gregg County Jail inmate has filed a lawsuit alleging he suffered a permanent disability because jail staff failed to monitor his medical condition. According to the Longview News-Journal, Harold Hagler filed the lawsuit on Aug. 29 in Gregg County Court at Law No. 2. The case was moved this past week to U.S. District Court in Tyler. The lawsuit claims jail staff ignored his requests for medical treatment in late August 2011, when his stomach began hurting.

After being rushed to Good Shepherd Medical Center in early September, Hagler underwent emergency surgery and must permanently use a colostomy bag, the lawsuit claims. Gregg County’s defense attorney, Robert Davis, gave little credence to the lawsuit. Hagler has been in the Gregg County Jail multiple times on charges including aggravated robbery, escape from custody, sexual assault and evading arrest with a vehicle.
