Regulators cited Montgomery jail for failing to provide timely care in inmate death

Reported the Houston Chronicle, "Montgomery County officials are moving to improve medical services at the county jail after a state commission found it had failed to provide timely care to an ailing inmate who later died of natural causes."

Specifically, "The Texas Commission on Jail Standards found the jail to be out of compliance with state standards on Feb. 9, following the death of inmate David Courtney in December." Here's the citation for not providing "efficient and prompt medical care for acute situations."
