DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A former inmate at the Boyle County Detention Center has filed a lawsuit, saying he received “significant bodily injuries” while being detained at the jail.

The Advocate-Messenger ( ) reports that Jack C. Hill II filed the complaint last week in Boyle Circuit Court naming the detention center, Boyle Fiscal Court, Jailer Barry Harmon and unnamed deputy jailers as defendants.

The lawsuit does not state how Hill was injured but claims his injuries occurred during his time of incarceration at the jail, which ended Oct. 31, 2014.

Hill says jail personnel ignored his repeated requests for medical attention following his unspecified injuries, which he says got worse because aid was not rendered in a timely fashion.

None of the defendants has yet responded to the lawsuit.
