Your question makes little sense to me. You haven't described the incident. What is a "taking incident"? Are you saying he was accused of stealing? What was the cause of your brother "almost" dying while in the county jail? You describe criminal charges but are asking about a civil claim. The two are like apples and oranges, while both are legal matters the two are completely different.
