ILLINOIS (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The father of a jail inmate says a visit to the Illinois facility left him as a prisoner, and now he's filing a lawsuit.

Farad Polk claims he spent more than 30 hours trapped in a concrete room earlier this month.

He says he spent hours trying to get someone to notice he was there.

The Jail Director says the room is hardly used, and was under repair at the time.
