Thank you, Glenda.
No, of course one cannot be at two places at once. What you are describing seems to be simply human record error, or, the county jail/state prison has yet to update its records, which they do every 24 hours or so.
Very likely, it seems that he was transferred to county jail to await a new charge.
Prison officials are obligated under the Eighth Amendment of the US Constitution to provide prisoners with adequate medical care. In order to prevail on a constitutional claim of inadequate medical care, prisoners must show that prison officials treated them with "deliberate indifference to serious medical needs." Estelle v. Gamble, 429 U.S. 97, 103 (1976).
The factors considered in determining whether a "serious medical need" is at issue are (1) whether a reasonable doctor or patient would perceive the medical need in question as important and worthy of comment or treatment; (2) whether the medical condition significantly affects daily activities; and (3) the existence of chronic and substantial pain. Brock v. Wright, 315 F.3d 158, 162 (2d Cir. 2003) (internal quotation marks, citation omitted).
The best way to deal with this is to have an attorney write a letter to BOTH incarceration places where he has been/may be, to remind them to take care of his need, or face litigation. It sounds better coming from an attorney because it holds more gravitas.
May I recommend the Texas Bar referral program - here
. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP.
The letter really should not be that expensive, and should do the trick.
I hope this helps and clarifies.
