    My son is required to take very serious medication for a fatal kidney disease. The medications make him very sick and he was subsequently convicted for being under the influence from one of his medications. The conviction was based on my son using an approved prescription that he must use just to be able to eat. He was sent to Butte County Jail and has not been receiving his medications appropriately. My son was scheduled to get out of Butte County jail on January 9th, 2013. He has not been allowed to communicate with his family in any way and he has not even been able to call his wife to let her know why. His wife barely understands English, is all by herself and has been very scared and worried. When my younger son called Butte County jail to see why - the attendant at Butte County would only tell him that he would not be out until January 24th, 2013. My son could die if he does not receive his medication properly and we as his family are extremely worried about him! My son is very outspoken concerning his health, as he has been under very serious care and in and out of hospital emergency rooms for the health issues related to his kidney disease. We are extremely concerned that Butte County has extended his incarceration as a direct result of him expressing his concerns over missing his medications and this could be detrimental to his ongoing kidney care and fragile health. However, there does not seem to be anyone in the Butte County jail system who comprehends and/or understands these types of health issues, nor the gravity and seriousness of this type of situation.

    I completely agree. My son in law Ryan Rash is in Butte County Jail and has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. He is 27 with 4 children. They are sending him back to Arizona to finish out his sentence when in all reality he is going to die. He desperately needs appropriate medical attention. My son should be in a hospital receiving the care that he needs. He only has a few months left on his sentence please have some mercy.
