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 was only freed after he broke a fire sprinkler to get someone's attention.

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.

She admits mistake swere made, but says there simply are not enough guards to keep track of everyone.
