5 Wayne County Sheriff Deputies Charged With Assaulting Inmates

DETROIT (WWJ) – Several Wayne County sheriff deputies have been charged Tuesday with allegedly assaulting inmates.

In some cases, the charges involve multiple alleged assaults of several inmates by deputies within the main jail facility at Clinton and St. Antoine Streets.
