La Salle County Sheriff and staff target of a federal lawsuit

Posted by wlpo on October 1, 2013

Getting arrested normally isn’t a pleasant experience but a woman from Grundy County claims the La Salle County Sheriff Deputies and officers intentionally degraded and humiliated her while she was being booked.

Dana Holmes of Coal City is suing Sheriff Tom Templeton, two officers and two deputies because she says she was carried into a cell and stripped naked with a only a blanket to cover herself while being processed after a DUI arrest on May 18.

The suit was filed Monday in Chicago.  Holmes is being represented by Ekl, Williams and Provenzale, LLC.

La Salle County Sheriff Tom Templeton says he hasn’t seen the lawsuit.  Todd Martin of the La Salle County States Attorney’s office will represent the county in the case.  He says they haven’t been served yet and that he cannot talk about pending lawsuits.
