TMZ.com is reporting that the death of Sean Levert in a Cleveland, Ohio jail after being forced to go without his prescription medicine for six days has led Cuyahoga County authorities to change its policies and give inmates meds for valid prescriptions.

 

      At the time of his death, Levert was jailed for failure to pay child support. He died in March of this year and initially it was reported that he died from natural causes.

 

      The jail had refused to give him his prescribed Xanax. His death was later said to have been caused, in part, by withdrawals from the medication.
