LOS ANGELES - A former inmate at the Century Regional Detention Facility filed a claim against Los Angeles County Monday, alleging she was not given the same level of medical review and care provided to hotel heiress Paris Hilton during her time at the jail.
Pamela Richardson, a 51-year-old black veteran whose legs were both amputated, claims she was treated far worse than Hilton because of her race and disability.

An attorney for the county said he had not yet seen the claim and could comment on the allegations.  Richardson was never charged with a crime, and is currently receiving medical care at the Veterans Administration facility in Westwood.
