Ohio jail guards avoid charges in incident



Published: Fri, November 9, 2012 @ 2:45 p.m.

FREMONT, Ohio (AP) — A grand jury in northwest Ohio has declined to indict three former jail guards accused of standing by as a mentally ill female inmate stripped off her clothes and engaged in lewd behavior.

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office said a Sandusky County grand jury heard the evidence this week but did not criminally charge the former deputies.

A report said the officers watched as the 21-year-old woman on a suicide watch stripped off her clothing, stuffed some of it in a toilet and was naked for several hours. But the grand jury said there was no evidence the deputies had physically abused, inappropriately touched, or threatened the inmate.

The Blade of Toledo reports that two of the deputies were fired and another resigned.

This just goes to show that these correctional workers need more training in dealing with the mentally ill.
