ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) — Records say five sheriff’s deputies in Louisiana were fired after an inmate complained about excessive force.
The Town Talk quotes Rapides Parish Clerk of Court records in a Monday report as saying 28-year-old Cody Darnell Richardson, 30-year-old John D. Aaron IV, 30-year-old Bradley Jacob Cohenour, 45-year-old Marlon Jerel Creecy and 38-year-old Quitina Kenyaka Frazier were fired after the inmate filed the complaint on March 21.
The five former parish sheriff’s deputies were indicted by a parish grand jury in March and will be arraigned on May 16.
Richardson was charged with the most offenses including second-degree battery. The others were charged with malfeasance in office. The charges are felonies.
