Ex-con in $3M suit: Jail guard choked me

‘I told everyone it was coming,’ Clausi says of federal complaint


Clausi blames Shoch, prison leadership

Clausi, a member of the prison board, criticized Commissioner Rick Shoch, the vice chair of that board, and the management of the prison. He also said he tried to settle the lawsuit, but was not successful.

“Now the taxpayers will pay the price,” Clausi said. “Mr. Shoch’s leadership is going the wrong direction. I believe the management must quit and go. I urge the prison board to open their eyes.”

Said Shoch: “Based on the investigative information that I have reviewed, I have seen nothing that would indicate that this claim has any merit whatsoever,” Shoch said.

“Our insurer was previously made aware of the fact that Ms. Olin’s attorneys had threatened a lawsuit, and we will coordinate with them regarding the defense of it.”
