Prison shrink gets jail sentence in inmate suicide


Milan, April 8 - A Milan court on Tuesday handed a
prison psychologist a suspended eight-month sentence for failing
to prevent the suicide of an inmate under her care, judicial
sources said.
The court found Roberta De Simone guilty of involuntary
manslaughter in the death Luca Campanale, 28, who hanged himself
with a sheet in his cell in August 2009.
Campanale was behind bars at Milan's San Vittore
penitentiary on drug-related offences.
The judge said De Simone underestimated the inmate's
suicidal tendencies, even though he had already tried to kill
himself eight times and two prison psychiatrists had diagnosed
him as psychotic and afflicted by persecution mania just a month
prior to his death.
In addition, De Simone was sentenced along with the justice
ministry to pay upwards of 500,000 euros in compensation to
Campanale's parents and his two brothers.
