MIAMI (AP) — A Florida corrections officer accused of throwing scalding water on an inmate has agreed to resign, complete a year of probation and perform 50 hours of community service.
The Miami Herald (http://goo.gl/sHOQ6e ) reports that 28-year-old Charlise Daniels-Wadley pleaded guilty Tuesday to misdemeanor battery as part of a plea deal.
Investigators say Daniels-Wadley and a Miami-Dade County inmate were exchanging insults in August 2012 when the guard threatened to Mace the inmate. Several minutes later, officials say, Daniels-Wadley threw hot liquid from a cup through the food flap of the inmate’s cell.
Officials say the inmate spent the rest of the day and night asking for medical assistance. A doctor the next morning diagnosed him with second-degree burns.
