Bryan County Jailer Fired

11-28-06 - A Bryan County jailer has been fired after an incident involving a female inmate last week. The FBI is investigating possible civil rights violations between the male jailer and a female inmate prior to Thanksgiving night.

The temporary jail adminstrator learned of the incident that night. She suspended the jailer and then fired him after an internal investigation. She had no comment about the situation on Tuesday, but did say things had improved at the jail since she took over two weeks ago.

This is the latest in a sting of problems at the facility, including escapes, administrator departures and another jailer arrested for being drunk on the job.
