A Two-Week Jail Confinement Led To The Loss Of Both Legs.
Who wants to be a millionaire, if it means losing your legs in the process? That is what is happening to Sapulpan Russell “Rusty” Mounger. Mounger has reached a $2.7 million settlement in a federal lawsuit he filed in February 2008 connected to his 2007 stay in the Creek County Jail. The two-week jail stint ended up costing him both of his legs when an infection caused by blood clots progressed to the point that doctors had no choice but to amputate.
