JAY, Okla. (AP) - Women who had served time in the Delaware County jail began receiving letters from the law office of a Tulsa attorney three weeks after the attorney's wife pleaded guilty to a DUI charge in the county.
The letters were sent on Garrett Law Office stationery and signed by David M. Garrett, whose office filed a federal lawsuit in June on behalf of four former inmates, claiming the county sheriff covered up sexual misconduct by jailers and a reserve deputy.
The letters asked the former inmates to contact the law office if they saw or were subjected to "improper activities by law enforcement personnel."
A member of Garrett's law firm says attorneys were investigating the allegations long before Katherine Garrett was charged with DUI and that David Garrett has nothing to do with the lawsuit.
