Call-In Campaign | No Jail Deaths
On April 12, Hector Daniel Sandoval’s mother called the mental health crisis line, seeking help for her intellectually disabled and schizophrenic son who was experiencing a crisis.
Instead of getting the help she needed, Tucson Police officers responded to her call and promptly arrested her son and took him to the Pima County Jail where he’s currently being held on a $10,000 bond.
This is another example of how the authorities in Pima County are failing us and using the jail as a catch all response for mental health and substance use. Instead of helping Hector, they’re holding him for ransom.
Last year, someone died in the Pima County Jail every 31 days. Waiting around until people get out is no longer an option. Getting Hector out may be the difference between life and death.
Please call those responsible for holding Hector.
