PRESS CONFERENCE: Sheriff’s Deputy Fired After Inmate Escapes

Roy Harris giving Press Conference

Interim Sheriff Roy Harris called a press conference to discuss the termination of COT Joseph Cooper.

On Tuesday, officials with the Sheriff’s Department said Cooper was fired for lack of action in the escape of James Buchans.

Cooper is alleged to have not paid attention when trustee James Buchans walked out the back door of the jail’s visitors center, and showed no immediate action when he learned of the escape.

We’ll have more on this press conference throughout the day.
