Wrongful Death Claim Filed by O.C. Inmate’s Father

Jose De Jesus Gomez, the father of an Orange County jail inmate, has filed a wrongful death claim after his son was allegedly "catastrophically injured" by sheriff's deputies. Jason Jesus Gomez, 35, was being held for 90 days for a parole violation stemming from pointing a gun at his neighbor.

On April 1, Gomez allegedly grabbed the arm of a nurse as she was passing medicine through his cell. The original story stated that Gomez was shocked by deputies who stunned him with a Taser, which caused him to go into a coma. Gomez lived for one week on life support before dying. A subsequent autopsy, whose contents were recently released, has revealed that Gomez suffered serious head wounds, and had bruises on his hands and arms indicating to Gomez's father's attorney that he was stomped on and beaten to death.

In the aftermath of Gomez's death, acting Sheriff Jack Anderson put several employees on administrative leave, and asked district attorneys to conduct a criminal investigation, but challenges that the autopsy's results point to any wrongdoing. Prior to Gomez's death, a special grand jury had sent Anderson a letter castigating the department in the wake of another inmate's death in 2006.
