Cell of squalor, weeks of despair: An investigation into the Harris County Jail (KTRK)

A Harris County jail inmate, jailed on a marijuana charge while on probation and in need of mental health care, was left in his cell for weeks without being let out, living amid heaps of trash, swarms of bugs, and piles of his own feces.

It was covered up.

Until ABC-13 started digging.
