"The commission said last year that Allen J. “A.J.” Longsoldier Jr. suffered from the counties’ discriminatory indifference to his alcoholism (but not, as his estate had claimed, discrimination based on his being Native American) when they failed to provide medications as prescribed to stave off the effects of delirium tremens. In March, a hearing officer in the Montana Department of Labor and Industry said the counties were liable for $300,000 for Longsoldier’s emotional distress during a portion of the time in jail before he died"

If Hewett was going through untreated alcohol withdraw then I hope his family gets all this and more.
