FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SUTHERLAND FAMILY STATEMENT
Charleston, SC – In response to the agreement reached between the Estate of Jamal Sutherland and the government entities, the family of Jamal Sutherland offers the following:
Justice for Jamal will come in many forms. We are pleased to have negotiated a settlement with the government entities that provides the type of civil justice he deserves, but our work is not yet done. With God’s help, we will continue the necessary conversations with local, state, and federal leaders to ensure that everyone affected by mental illness is treated with the same dignity and respect we all deserve and demand. As we move forward, please continue to pray for our family, our community, each other, and justice for Jamal.
