Man Gets $750,000 After He Suffered 6 Days Erection In Prison!

A 50-year-old man identified as Rodney Cotton who was an inmate at the Manhattan Detention Complex, filed a lawsuit in New York, after he had an erection in prison for 6 days, and he was awarded $750,000.

Cotton filed his lawsuit after suffering an erection for 6 days and being denied treatment while in custody. Cotton said that he suffered permanent virility due to failure of treatment. The erection was a side effect of Risperdal, an antidepressant that he was taking.

The court heard that after the erection persisted for hours, Cotton asked to be taken to the prison clinic, but the guard allegedly told him he would have to wait. Cotton pretended to have chest pains in order to be seen by doctors. Two doctors gave the man ice packs and Tylenol instead of sending
him to a hospital.

Cotton, who was serving a 2 and a half year stint in prison for violating parole, was awarded a $750,000 compensation.
