Ohio Jail Deputy Allowed Inmates to Assault Alleged Sex Offender

June 12, 2010 Comments off Authorities say deputy at Ohio jail allowed inmates to assault alleged sex offender.

Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a former sheriff’s deputy who worked at a northeast Ohio jail is accused of felonious assault and other crimes because he turned a blind eye while four inmates attacked an accused sex offender.

Twenty-nine-year-old Brian Young also faces charges of abduction, dereliction of duty and unauthorized use of property in the alleged assault at the Medina County jail in December.

Young is accused of sharing with the four inmates booking information on the alleged sex offender, who was accused of raping a child. A prosecutor says Young then did nothing when the inmates attacked the man.

Young has posted a $10,000 bond and faces a Monday arraignment. A sheriff’s official says he retired on a disability pension.
