CLEVELAND — Closing arguments are scheduled to begin Thursday in the trial of former Cuyahoga County Regional Director of Corrections Ken Mills, who is accused of dereliction of duty.
Note: The court has recessed for lunch and then deliberations will begin.
Mills is accused of depriving inmates of basic needs thereby making the jail unsafe and of lying to county council about his role in blocking the hiring of nurses at the jail just weeks before the first in a string of eight inmate deaths in the last six months of 2018.
