Manchester man convicted on meth-related charges now suing Rockingham County jail

BRENTWOOD - A Manchester man who was arrested in April on meth-related charges, is now suing the Rockingham County Department of Corrections over alleged physical and mental health trauma.

According to Seacoast Online, 32-year-old Derrick Hentschel, who was previously convicted of producing methamphetamine, was on parole when he was found in possession of meth during a routine traffic stop.

The court documents say Hentschel wants $2,400 per day since he has been at the jail, “appropriate medical treatment,” for the jail officials to pay all court fees.

In all he's asking for $3.5 million.

Now, he has filed a lawsuit against Rockingham County claiming he suffers from ADD, anti-social personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and a severe knee injury.

Hentschel also said he suffered lack of sleep and physical pain.

Hentchel was stopped in 2004 silver Dodge Caravan for a routine traffic stop and had an active warrant for his arrest to appear in court for a simple assault charge.
