An inquest jury in May recommended charges against seven Milwaukee County Jail officials in the dehydration death of Terrill Thomas, who was denied water and a mattress for seven days while in Clarke's jail, the Milkwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Clarke rose to prominence as a national media figure during his tenure as sheriff of Milwaukee County, increasingly appearing on cable news outlets like FOX News to talk about police issues.
WTMJ-TV's Steve Chamraz first broke the story Thursday.
