Carlota shares how Bexar county neglected her son who has a history of epilepsy and mental health issues, while he was held for 9 months before having a trial. In telling their story, Mr. and Mrs. Torres hope to raise public awareness of how jailing people with mental disorders for months while they await trial can lead to further trauma and injuries.
