Q: Is there anything I can do about charges my son received due to neglect of the jail?

He was sitting in the booking area waiting to be booked, and the jail left the sally port door open and he ran out of it. Racking up several other charges. If the facility hadn't been negligent he would not be facing the additional charges.
