Attorney Erubey Lopez went to a San Diego, California, jail to meet with a client and ended up trapped in a visiting room by himself for four hours. Lopez entered the room thinking deputies would bring his client soon. After about a half hour, he tried to reach jailers with the intercom, but no one answered. He tried shouting and pounding the door. But that didn't work. Finally, a guard heard him and let him out.
