February 23, 2015. My son Erick Hennessee was brutally assaulted while handcuffed. The reason why I am presenting this to you now is because he was never under arrest. Gwinnett County Sheriff Deputy Wigenton and Deputy Kirk Davis ]had a court order to escort my son the hospital for a 72 hour mental health hold. He never made it. in 11 months, this is what my family has endured.
1. February 23, first 1013 granted and elapsed because my son was on "medical hold" for 2 weeks" he didn't even stand before a judge for 9 days, no one had ever told me he was assaulted.
2. Police report omits all information pertaining to assault on my son. Assault was confirmed after requesting an Internal Review. Admitted force was used but exonerated them? By whom did this investigation take place?
3.First court appointed attorney replaced after I filed a complaint for lack of representation. He allowed for my sons case to go to grand jury knowing he was mentally ill, after repeated emails and conversations pleading for Erick to be hospitalized. He had untreated physical injuries and untreated mental illness for
4. Erick Hennessee has had two indictment dates, a 3rd request for mental evaluation and still he is sitting in jail for almost a year and now being asked to plea in order to get treatment.
5. I have expressed my concern of my sons emaciated appearance and confirmed by Corizon employees and sheriff's. I have questioned his safety, and to be placed inpatient pending outcome of judicial proceedings. I have also asked Judge Hamil, District Attorney Andrea Alabi.
6.I petitioned Congressman Rob Woodall's office and received response after several attempts. his office would hear the entire story and forward it to other judicial members who may assist me.
