Douglas County will pay an outside law firm up to $50,000 to defend itself in a federal lawsuit filed by a former jail psychiatrist.
Dr. Eugene Oliveto, who worked for the vendor that provides mental health care at the Douglas County Jail, said he was fired after a competency hearing for Nikko Jenkins in which Oliveto called the accused killer “crazy ... totally insane.”
