Corrections officer hit in face with feces sues

CO Walter Sampson was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after the incident

By Ben Giles
Washington Examiner

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A D.C. corrections officer who said he developed suicidal tendencies after an inmate threw feces in his face has sued the District's Department of Corrections, claiming they failed to provide him with disability benefits.

Sterling resident Walter Sampson was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after the incident on Aug. 30, 2006, when a prisoner flung feces into his face, according to a complaint filed Thursday.

The corrections department failed by "refusing [Sampson] reasonable accommodation to the known physical and mental limitations" Sampson dealt with after the incident, according to the case.

Calls to Sampson's attorney Friday were not returned.
