Cail Williamson, a resident of Boonville, father of two and student at Adirondack High School, was jailed on August 10, 2003 on larceny and felony burglary charges. He had other pending felony charges in Lewis County. In September 2003, he hung himself in his jail cell. Ronald Williamson sued on behalf of Cail and his family, claiming negligence on the part of both the jail (Oneida County) and its contractor, CNY Services, which provides psychological assessments of newly admitted prisoners. The matter had been scheduled for trial on May 12, 2008. See: Estate of Cail Williamson v. Oneida County and Ronald Williamson v. County of Oneida, Oneida County Superior Court.
