The Jeffco Sheriff’s Office has reprimanded six jail deputies after an investigation into the March death of Jennifer Lobato, who died in her cell after waiting hours in vain for medical attention. 

Sheriff's spokeswoman Jacki Kelley said the six deputies were given written reprimands for their actions or lack of action. Lobato died March 2, a day after being booked into the jail on a shoplifting charge.
