A Corrections Officer Allegedly Did Nothing for 15 Minutes as an Inmate Hung Himself

A New York City Department of Corrections captain was indicted by a grand jury on Monday for allegedly watching as an inmate hanged himself with a bedsheet tied to a light fixture and ignoring pleas from officers and inmates for 15 minutes after he jumped. Other corrections officers testified against her during the proceeding, according to CBS New York. AdvertisementCorrections officer Oscar Rojo had been talking to Wilson and asked for Hillman’s help, according to the New York Daily News, but she ignored the threat and instead allegedly filled out paperwork. After 15 minutes, she allowed officers to cut Wilson down and attempt to save him, but by the time medical personnel arrived, Wilson was already dead. Afterward, Hillman filed a report falsely claiming that she had Wilson’s cell door opened and “immediately” had him cut down.
