Officer bitten by inmate

GRAYSON COUNTY -- A sheriff's deputy is recovering after being bit in the hand by an inmate. It happened Monday as deputies were booking the suspect into the county jail.

Grayson County Sheriff Keith Gary says it’s not the first time a corrections officer has been attacked, but it is one of the first cases of an officer being bitten by an inmate.

Officials say 22-year-old Jamie Deontrey Wilson was arrested yesterday for failing to display headlights after an incident in Sherman.

Wilson was then taken to the Grayson County Jail, and after he was allowed to make his phone call, became agitated and started yelling at the corrections officers that were taking him to a holding cell.

As he was being placed in the cell, Wilson bit one of the officers on the index finger.

The bite was so severe doctors were afraid to close the wound because of the risk of infection.

Another officer who tried to separate the two men was bitten by Wilson as well, but his injury was not as severe.

Wilson is being charged with aggravated assault on a public servant for the ordeal.

"We know officers that are out on the street face dangers every day, we don’t normally think of injuries coming to our corrections officers, but this is an indication that things go bad in the jail, and there can be serious injuries," said Grayson County Sheriff Keith Gary.

Wilson is a defendant in at least two cases in Grayson County, sexual assault of a child and aggravated assault with a weapon.

His bond is set at $105,000.

    i know jamie, yes he can be a good person but i have seen him flip out and frankly i have a five yr. old and if she was a 14-year old girl and a 22 year old MAN was messing with my daughter, whether she was willing or not i would want the law to do what it is supposed to do. i feel for his family (trust me i do) but he is a lost cause, they know this, wilson family take care of what u got right now. he is a grown man and he knows right from wrong.

    Hay Capricorn, if he's your cousin, I do feel sorry for you and your family. If I were you, I'd either be praying real hard he gets a lighter sentence should he go to trial and be found guilty, or get your cash together and get him a good lawyer. By the way, a 20-something year old having sex with a 14-year old- is this not sinking in that this sounds wqrong, or does your whole family endorse this stuff? I hope not. BTW, if I DO wind up in Hell, I'll be sure to say HI when I see you.

    first, i would like to say that half of the people that comment are probably just as bad or has some one in there family just as bad. you will go to hell for the bible say thou shall not judge and each oone of you has judged some one on a sistuation that neither of you know the facts too. if people in this world would stop tring to judge and convict before a trial and facts are given, this world would be a better place. there is only one that can judge and i don't think neither of you died on a cross. so please pray before you begin to judge someone. and yes, i do know this person, he is my cousin and i am proud to say that he is. did any of you think about his family before you started blasting at the mouth? i dodn't think so... she is a God fearing mother, grandmother, sister and friend, and your words can hurt. please stop and think about this as you sit at your computer and begin to judge another person.

    Haley I hope you aren't being pressured into saying that you were willing. At 14 you don't even know what willing means. Where are your parents and why aren't they keeping you away from scum like this creep. You need to be in the custody of Juvinal Protective services. I am so sorry for you, you need to be protected from this kind of scum and if your parents aren't willing to do it them please find someone who will.

    Haley, We love you, and hope you regain some brain cells, and realize this dude is CRAZY and you are to beautyful to keep all this going on. He assulted your mother! He is discusting, he is no better than any other baby raper in this world. To the authorities of Grayson county, PLEASE stick this nasty @#@@#@ in the death chamber. And to the sister...DUH!!!

    Haley the prison is full of people like this man. It is illegal for a man of 22 to be with a 14 year old child and you cant even take care of yourself so how do you think you can take care of a child.You are not even responsible enough to go to school. I am through with you but i will keep you inj my prayers as well as pray for Jamies family they need to get some morales and values in there lives its wrong for a grown man to be with a child and i would be the same way if it was one of my boys grow up Jamie and find a woman not a child

    Haley, in Texas just as in other states, sex with someone under the age of consent is considered statutory rape, whether you were willing or not. The law's pretty clear on this. It was written to protect young people of your age, regardless of what you think. If you were my daughter and I found out about it, this young man would be found face-down in a gutter, dead. YOU would be in serious trouble. You have no idea if he has HIV or any other sexually transmitted disease. Being pregnant at 14 pretty much wrecks your life, and puts you in a lifetime on welfare, not to mention the child you would have. This "man" is not for you, and niether is the future he has to offer you. Turn it around and get your life straightened out before you wind up in his shoes.

    Haley, you are a 14 year old child and you should not be associating with this kind of people. You need to talk to your parents and get your life straightened out. You are not old enough to make a decision to have sex.

    I contacted the Sherman Police Dept about this young man selling crack at a Sherman convenance store and its a shame someone had to get hurt before they would do anything about him. Anyone that would use a young child to the point in which he has needs to be in prison for the rest of his life. How many of your young children has he sold his poison to?May God have mercy on your soul
