LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - An inmate in the Ingham County Jail will live to see another day thanks to a few deputies.

Ingham County Sheriffs say at approximately 4:45 a.m. this morning, deputies discovered an inmate experiencing a medical emergency while alone in his cell at the Ingham County Jail. He was unresponsive and not breathing.

Ingham County Sheriff’s Office released video of the deputies’ heroic efforts.

In the video, staff immediately initiated lifesaving efforts to include CPR, and connecting an electronic defibrillator while awaiting Emergency Medical Services.

After approximately 20 minutes of CPR, the inmate regained consciousness and soon after responded to staff communication. The 27-year-old male inmate was transported to a local hospital for further medical evaluation and treatment, where he is in good condition, according to deputies.

Ingham County Sheriffs say the man was arrested on a parole violation and processed into the Ingham County Jail just ahead of 9:00 pm on 4/27/21. The investigation into the cause of the medical emergency is ongoing.

Election 2020: Candidates for Ingham County Sheriff

Across Greater Lansing, voters have begun to cast ballots for the 2020 stategeneral election . Winners of the primary advance to the 2020 general election on Nov. 3.

Scott Wriggelsworth | Democrat (incumbent)

Ingham County Sheriff Scott Wriggelsworth

Wriggelsworth lives in Holt with his son, Jake. He is a current commissioner on the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commission and is active in Rotary Club, the Holt School Business Alliance, 100 Club Board President, Ho Education Foundation and Lansing Area Safety Council (just to name a few).

Candidates answer questions on major topics

Have you met with members of diverse populations in the community you plant to serve? If yes, briefly share what you learned. If not, why not?

Wriggelsworth: I do this regularly both in my professional and personal life. Undoubtedly there needs to be improvements made in the all systems of government to ensure equal opportunity for all. Commitments are needed fro both the public and private sectors to eliminate racism in any form, wherever it may be.

Wells: No response.

What steps are needed to address systemic racism and police brutality in the county sheriffs office? Please commit to a timetable for implementing any changes.

Wriggelsworth: As I stand firm in saying there is neither systematic racism or police brutality occurring at the Ingham County Sheriff's Office. Holding employees accountable to our mission statement, reviewing every use of force incident, engaging our community, diversifying our workforce and being bold in new ideas. The Sheriff's Office has changed significantly since I took office on 1-1-2017, not just in the past few weeks.

Wells: No response.

With additional financial pressures after the COVID-19 pandemic, budget cuts are likely. Which services would you reduce or eliminate and why?

Wriggelsworth: None of the Sheriff's Office services should be cut. In both corrections and law enforcement, the battle in fighting this pandemic is firmly on our shoulders. Policies and practices in the jail, as well as on the street, to combat COVID-19, and keep it contained: We have been on the front lines and remain there. We don't get to work from home, or let work stack up. Law enforcement and corrections is a 24/7/365 operation and our jobs got way more complicated with COVID-19. We were hoping we were going to get back to some normalcy, but it appears COVID is making a comeback, and now.

Wells: No response.

Does the sheriffs office provide sufficient public data for the citizens to accurately judge its interactions with the diverse communities it serves? If yes, explain what data is provided. If not, what would you do to make changes?

Wriggelsworth: Yes. We pride ourselves on our relationships with local media, involvement in diverse community groups to share what we are doing, and responsiveness when inquires/complaints are made. We are open about our processes to file complaints against employees, timeliness in investigating them, and follow up with the complainant with a resolution. With respect to the Office of Sheriff and being an elected official, the voting public is the best gauge of how both the Sheriff, and the Sheriffs Office are doing serving the public. In my opinion, overall the residents of Ingham County are happy with the work we are doing.

Wells: No response.

RELATED:What you need to know, info on key races for Greater Lansing voters

Will you involve a citizen's group in reviewing complaints about deputy conduct and will you commit to diversity on that panel at a level that reflects the diversity of the county you serve?

Wriggelsworth: I do not plan to create a citizen review board to handle complaints against deputies. Holding employees accountable for their actions is what the public elects me to do. I pride myself on doing that well and will continue to as long as I am Sheriff.

Wells: No response.   

Are you satisfied with operations at the county jail? If not, what would you change? Please include a timetable.

Wriggelsworth: Its called corrections, not incarcerations. Increasing programming, and opportunities for inmates to improve their decision making, mental health, and physical health (having a substance use disorder) are keys to their success. We engage inmates through a multitude of programs, specialty courts, and other services to give them the best chance to stay out of jail, and lower the recidivism rate in this county.

Wells: No response.

Ingham County Sheriff gathers signatures to change controversial firearm policy

Ingham County, Mich. (WLNS) — Ingham County Sheriff Scott Wriggelsworth has been gathering elected officials to talk about Ingham County Prosecutor Carol Siemon’s controversial felony firearm charging policy.

On August 10, Siemon released a new policy that said they would no longer issue charges for felony firearms unless extreme circumstances warrant the charge.

Examples of that include:

  • When other charges that could apply don’t address the circumstances of the case.
  • When there isn’t a witness and they can’t meet the burden for other applicable charges.

At the time, Wriggelsworth called the policy change “garbage” while speaking about it in a press conference.

The current Michigan felony firearm statue holds a mandatory 2, 5 or 10 years sentence upon conviction. The Ingham County’s Sheriff’s Office is asking Prosecutor Carol Siemon to reconsider her internal felony firearm charging policy.

“In light of unprecedent gun violence in our county and here locally in Ingham County, we elected leaders in charge of running our respective cities, villages and townships ask Prosecutor Carol Simeon to reconsider her internal felony firearm charging policy,” Wriggelsworth said.

Wriggelsworth began to schedule individual meetings with the elected city mayors, township supervisors and village presidents to engage and discuss the policy on Aug. 16.

Wriggelsworth’s primary focus was to get feedback from the local officials, and see how they felt about the policy.

Wriggelsworth has met with all 23 elected officials representing their respective units of government.

21 of 23 elected officials signed a document that said the policy “does not hold the people criminally accountable, and increases the likelihood of additional gun violence in the communities we are tasked to govern, lead, serve, and protect,” Wriggelsworth said.

Siemon responded with the following statement:

“During my tenure as the prosecutor, I’ve worked to reform the system, consistent with the approach that we have had since first joining the campaign in 2016 and advocating, “Progressive changes in the criminal justice system.”

During my first term in office, the number of persons imprisoned from Ingham County was reduced by 37%. At the same time, though, we saw that among the population of those whose cases were handled by our office, we have had the same racial disparity. For example, the 12 percent of the population that is black continues to make up 40 percent of our cases. Shrinking the system – decarceration – is not enough by itself.

Working with the Vera Institute of Justice, the Metro Lansing Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation project, and others, we are taking a closer look at the policies and the types of cases that create racial disparity. There is a movement for progressive changes in the system, and the murder of George Floyd at the hands of police brought the issues to focus. The voices of protest and calls for change have energized and inspired us to do more and do better to create real justice.

I believe there are public safety considerations that encompass not only jailing and incarcerating offenders, but also limiting the kinds of inappropriate stops and searches of Black Americans that also have public safety consequences.

I’ve read this correspondence and appreciate these views. At the same time, I have a responsibility to lead the prosecutor’s office and have been twice chosen to do so by the people of Ingham County. The policies that we have developed were research-based and we will continue to incorporate ongoing data into the development of future policies. We have developed an ongoing set of reforms – addressing public safety, mass incarceration, and racial equity – and I can assure the public that we are not going to reverse course on bringing about change.”

Sours: //

Now discussing:

My girlfriend did not allow her to do cunnilingus, considering it something shameful, and for the first time I felt the. Taste of female lubricant. Having passed the tongue up, I stopped on the clitoris, and began to massage it in a circular motion.

Sharp nails grabbed my head and tried to scratch my skin and pull out my hair. But this did not stop me, and the pain only spurred my excitement.
