Clay County Inmate Death


Posted

Clay County – Jered Jerome Nichols, age 44, was arrested last week for simple battery and retail theft. Nichols was housed in the Clay County Jail following his arrest.

This morning, shortly after 11:30, while being assessed by medical personnel due to appearing ill and not as a result of a use of force incident, Nichols experienced an apparent medical emergency. The efforts of Deputies and medical staff to revive him were unsuccessful.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is conducting a review of this case, and the Medical Examiner’s Office has also accepted jurisdiction.

The family has been notified, and the Clay County Sheriff’s Office expresses our condolences to them at this difficult time.
