Woman who lost baby after giving birth in jail sues MDC staff


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A former inmate gave birth to her baby in jail, but the baby didn’t survive. Now the woman is suing, claiming staff at MDC ignored her pleas for help.

In October 2016, Shawna Tanner admitted to a judge that she failed a drug test while on probation. That violation is, essentially, what sent Tanner back to jail. At the time, she was eight months pregnant.

During the 16-days she spent behind bars, Tanner went into labor, but the baby didn’t make it.

Now she’s suing for the way she said staff at MDC handled the situation. In the lawsuit filed Friday in federal court, Tanner claims that a day before she went into labor, staff at MDC ignored her calls for help when she said she was bleeding and cramping.

The next day, Tanner said she continued to report abdominal pain to corrections officers. According ot the lawsuit, instead of calling an ambulance to take her to the hospital, Tanner said medical staff accused her of wanting drugs and locked her in a cell in the infirmary.

When paramedics arrived mid-day, Tanner claims it was too late and she went into labor in the infirmary. She said paramedics were forced to deliver the baby because the doctor on staff “refused” to help.

Once the baby was out, paramedics discovered he was not breathing.

Tanner is suing the county and the jail staff, including nurses and the doctor at MDC. The lawsuit did not clarify why the doctor would not help Tanner during delivery.

KRQE News 13 reached out to the county for comment and to see if any policies have changed since the incident, but did not hear back.

Back in October, MDC told KRQE News 13 it was investigating the baby’s death but wouldn’t provide more information, claiming medical privacy laws.

No Charges In Vicious Beating During Energy Sales Pitch

(CBS) – Surveillance video from earlier this month shows the women a South Side man claims beat him after an energy sales pitch turned violent.

CBS 2’s Audrina Bigos has the video and the victim’s story.

Front-porch surveillance video taken Aug. 18 shows women with clipboards knocking on a door near 91st and Kingston.

The video was taken only minutes before the women claiming to work Think Energy made another stop – at Keven Hamblet’s house.

“I just shouldn’t have opened the door,” Hamblet says.

But he did. Hamblet, now battered and bruised, claims the women in the video were the same women who tried to sell him a Think Energy utility plan.

“I said ‘No thank you,’” he says.

Things escalated to an argument when he kept refusing their service, he says.

Hamblet says they threw a clipboard at him, then repeatedly punched and kicked his face and body.

“I was outnumbered,” he says.

Hamblet is already on dialysis and recently suffered a stroke. Now, he has a fractured eye socket, and doctors tell him he may need facial reconstructive surgery

A Think Energy spokesperson says the sales agents have been placed on leave while the company investigates. At least one of the women are claiming they were assaulted by the homeowner.

No charges have been filed.

Rockies Fall To Braves 5-2, Atlanta Snaps Home Losing Streak

ATLANTA (AP) — All Julio Teheran needed to snap an Atlanta-record home losing streak was a visit from the Colorado Rockies, one of his favorite opponents.

Teheran won at home for the first time in four months, Matt Kemp and Kurt Suzuki hit home runs and the Atlanta Braves beat Chad Bettis and the Rockies 5-2 on Friday night.

Teheran (8-11) snapped his streak of nine straight home losses, the longest in Atlanta history, as he limited Colorado to two runs and five hits with no walks in 7 1/3 innings.

“He’s been tough on the Rockies for his entire career,” Colorado outfielder Carlos Gonzalez said. “He did a great job mixing his pitches.”

Teheran improved to 5-1 in eight career starts against the Rockies and has sometimes been dominant even when he hasn’t won. He threw seven scoreless innings while receiving a no decision in the Braves’ 3-0 loss at Colorado on Aug. 14. He took his plan from that performance into Friday night’s game.

“I don’t feel I have to change anything,” Teheran said. “I just kept the same plan and it worked today.”

Teheran, the two-time All-Star expected to be Atlanta’s ace in its rebuilding phase, said “It feels pretty good” to finally win at home. He might have lasted longer if not for problems with cramping that led to his exit in the eighth after throwing 88 pitches.

Kemp and Suzuki each hit first-pitch homers off Bettis (0-1). Kemp hit a two-run shot in the first and Suzuki led off the second with a line-drive shot over the left-field wall. Kemp had three hits.
Mark Reynolds hit his 27th homer in the seventh for Colorado.

Bettis, making his third start since his return from surgery and treatment for testicular cancer, allowed five runs in five innings.

Arodys Vizcaino pitched the ninth for his eighth save.

Teheran beat San Diego in his first start at SunTrust Park on April 14. The right-hander was 0-9 with a 7.37 ERA in his next 12 home starts. He is 6-2 with a 3.24 ERA in 12 road starts.

“I’m just really glad to see him go out and have an outing like that here,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said.

The Rockies have lost five of six but still hold one of the two NL wild cards.

As part of Major League Baseball’s first Players Weekend featuring nontraditional uniforms, Braves players wore dark blue shirts with red sleeves, numbers and caps and white pants. The Rockies’ road gray uniforms had light purple sleeves, numbers and caps.

Teheran, who wore his initials “JT” for his jersey nickname, gave up Charlie Blackmon’s run-scoring single in the third but then allowed only one baserunner the next three innings.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Rockies: Blackmon fell while suffering from cramping in his left leg after taking a big swing on a foul ball in the eighth. He left the game with a trainer. Pat Valaika replaced Blackmon and struck out. Manager Bud Black said he hopes Blackmon can play on Saturday night.

Braves: LHP Ian Krol (left oblique strain) and RHP Luke Jackson (right shoulder strain) could be ready to come off the DL on Sept. 1, when rosters are expanded. … INF Johan Camargo (right knee bone bruise) still is not able to make cuts in his workouts.

EIGHT WAS ENOUGH

Craig McMurtry (1984) and Shelby Miller (2015) each lost eight straight home games for Atlanta.

COLOR THEIR WORLD

Players took advantage of the freedom to add more color. Colorado’s Bettis, Reynolds, Jon Gray and Raimel Tapia and Atlanta’s Ozzie Albies were among players to wear multicolored striped socks.
Ender Inciarte wore gold cleats.

Gonzalez had his face painted on the sweet spot of his bat, which also had purple trim.

HI, I’M HARRY

Black had real name “Harry” on jersey. He noted that long-timers such as Braves executives John Schuerholz and John Hart call him Harry.

UP NEXT

Rockies: LHP Kyle Freeland (11-8, 3.71) allowed three runs on four hits in six innings in a no-decision against Atlanta at Coors Field in the Braves’ 4-3 win on Aug. 15.

Braves: LHP Sean Newcomb (2-7, 4.13) will face Freeland in a matchup of rookie left-handers. Newcomb will try for his second straight home win after throwing five scoreless innings in an 8-1 win over the Reds on Sunday.

Phillies Flatten Cubs 7-1 In Series Opener

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Rhys Hoskins hit another homer and Cesar Hernandez ripped a three-run triple to back Jerad Eickhoff, helping the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Chicago Cubs 7-1 on Friday night.

Called up from the minors too late to get a nickname on the back of his uniform for Players Weekend, Hoskins has put on a tremendous power display. He has nine homers and 21 RBIs in 16 games. No player in major league history has reached nine homers that quickly, according to MLB.com.

“I don’t know if it’s hit me yet, but it’s pretty cool to be mentioned in a sentence as `first ever,'” Hoskins said.

Eickhoff (4-7) allowed one run and five hits, striking out eight in five innings. He has won four straight decisions.

“He’s good,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “He was able to throw his curve for a strike when he wanted to. He was really good at that.”

Jose Quintana (4-3) gave up six runs and nine hits in five innings, tying his worst start in eight outings since the Cubs acquired him from the White Sox.

Kyle Schwarber hit a solo homer in the first for NL Central-leading Chicago.

 

ZOOLANDER

Maddon admitted he’s been dyeing his hair a darker shade of gray and joked about trying to achieve the blue-steel color Ben Stiller rocked in the Zoolander movie.

 

BEST NICKNAMES

Cubs: Jake Arrieta wore “The Snake” on his uniform. Ben Zobrist is “Zorilla.” Javier Baez is “El Mago.” It means the magician in Spanish.

Phillies: Jorge Alfaro is “El Oso.” It means the bear in Spanish. Andres Blanco is “Whitey.”

 

TRAINER’S ROOM

CUBS: P Jon Lester threw a bullpen session Friday for the first time since going on the disabled list because of left shoulder fatigue. He threw 42 pitches in the bullpen and is set to throw a simulated game Monday.

PHILLIES: OF Daniel Nava was activated from the disabled list. He replaced P Jake Thompson on the roster. Thompson was sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley after starting Thursday’s game.

 

UP NEXT

RHP Kyle Kendricks (4-4, 3.52 ERA) goes for the Cubs on Saturday night while RHP Ben Lively (1-4, 3.70) takes the mound for the Phillies.

State responds to suspect’s request to lessen conditions of release

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The state responded, now a judge will decide whether to scale back conditions of release for Justin Hansen.

Hansen was arrested last month for the 2008 beating of then-Cibola High School student, Brittani Marcel.

Judge Charles Brown released him while he awaits trial, but Hansen has since filed a motion claiming the rules are creating a burden for his family members with jobs.

His conditions of release require a family member or other responsible party to be with him at all times.

The state has now filed its own motion. It says Hansen and his family knew what they were agreeing to, and say Hansen could always go back to jail.

The matter goes before a judge next month.
