Forty-one year old Caddo Parish resident Shelia Lozada filed a lawsuit against the Bossier Maximum Securiety Facility and Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen. Lozada allegedly refused to disrobe and wear a suicide smock after repeated attempts by a female guard to wear the smock as standard procedure for suicide risk inmates or those that have previous mental disabilities. Lozado maintains that deputies were too rough and harassed her; however, a continuously running surveillance tape of the incident did not record the alleged abuse but instead allegedly told a much different story.
