Diana Sanchez, 26, is suing Denver city and county officials for forcing her to give birth inside a county jail cell more than a year ago. Her son, Jordan (inset), came into this world shivering on a thin mattress across from a toilet inside a dirty Denver County jail cell on July 31, 2018. Sanchez claims that she was left alone and without any pain relief during her labor. Recently-released jail cell surveillance video shows Sanchez telling a Denver County Jail guard she was going into later around 5am that day. She gave birth at 10.44am, and her son was taken away by a male nurse who was watching her from outside the cell. An internal review determined none of the Denver County Sheriff deputies or staff at the jail did anything wrong throughout Sanchez’s ordeal.
