JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The family of a Jacksonville man says he died in November after going two days in the Duval County jail without the medication he needed to survive.

Police video shows him repeatedly telling the arresting officer he needs his medication because he was a heart transplant recipient.

The incident, which was first reported by The Tributary, raises questions about how the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office provides healthcare to inmates.

Barry’s attorney and his family claim his death is the result of a systemic problem.

Patients with organ transplants take daily medication to keep their bodies from rejecting the transplant.

“If something happens to me because of my heart, there’s going to be a problem,” Barry said.

A spokesperson from the American Board of Trial Advocates says any suggestion the first appearance judge acted improperly is unfair. »
