Doctor fired, Valley Street jail lawsuits pile up

Ward said Ryan, who has been with Hillsborough County since 2008 and earns $65,000, is very good at what she does.
"As far as I'm concerned, she knows what she's doing," he said.
In another case, Raymond Rheault received $20,000 after complaining his medicine was eliminated and he was placed in solitary confinement for nine months, where his condition deteriorated so much that he had to be admitted to the New Hampshire State Hospital.Coming Tuesday: A female corrections officer speaks up; lawsuits generated by "The Hole."
