Report: Jail guard's stories conflict
May 16, 2013 at 4:43 AM
An internal investigation found Deputy Chris Benson provided conflicting stories when asked about allegations he hit a co-worker.
Benson allegedly told his supervisors he used his finger to direct his co-worker's face toward him. Later, he told an investigator he did not touch the woman, but her chin may have hit his hand when she turned her head.
"This statement to administration contradicts his statement that he never touched her face,” stated the report by Deputy Zachary Zender, who investigated the allegations.
Benson could face disciplinary action this week.
