    Mathew Ajibade, 22, died while in police custody, and was found dead in an isolation cell in January 2015.

    A Georgia ex-deputy was sentenced Friday to the equivalent of a month in jail and another former deputy and nurse got probation in the death of a mentally ill man who died after being shocked with a stun gun while restrained and then left unattended, NBC News reported. 

    Chris Oladapo, Ajibade's cousin, did not attend Friday's sentencing in protest of what he called a "stillborn prosecution."

    "There were more than a dozen people fired because they contributed to Mathew's death. Only three were charged with crimes," he said in a statement to be read at the sentencing.
