Diana Coffey is our guest today. Her son was Andrew Crutcher, a member of the Reno Sparks Indian Colony.

In 2006, Andrew Crutcher was convicted of discharging a firearm, a misdemeanor, on the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony in Nevada. After serving six months in a Nevada facility, the BIA transferred him to the MCADC in McKinley County.  Andrew was required to take medication for his heart condition. While at MCADC, Andrew called his mother, Diana Coffey  and advised her that he was neither receiving medical attention nor his required medication. Diana did not know how to reach the MCADC officials to advise them of Andrew's medical needs. January 18, 2007, MCADC reported to be "looking into" his heart medication. On January 26, 2007, the MCADC clinic asked that Crutcher be evaluated for medications, because he reported cardiomyopathy since 2005. On February 8, 2007, a correctional officer took Crutcher to the MCADC clinic. The gravely ill Crutcher was then transported to a Gallup hospital where he died.

Join us to hear Diana give the facts about her sons case.
