Here's the plot of your next realistically Kafka-esque expose

Mail Online: A man held in solitary confinement for two years and forced to pull his own tooth because he was denied dental care has been awarded $22million for violation of his constitutional rights.

Stephen Slevin, 58, from New Mexico, was given the payout after accusing Dona Ana County jail of essentially forgetting about him after he was arrested for driving while intoxicated, not giving him the healthcare he needed and treating him inhumanely.

Hat tip to Todd Mason.

Now I only need to learn to type. Perhaps typos on his incarceration record...

I have my own typing troubles. I should've fixed the typo to begin with, but I didn't notice it.

If he was forgotten for two years, who was feeding him?
