Third inmate added to abuse charges against LA County Sheriff’s deputy

City News Service | January 24, 2014

LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy already accused of assaulting two inmates and lying about the incidents also assaulted a third inmate, prosecutors alleged in new charges, it was reported today.

Jermaine W. Jackson, a five-year veteran of the department when charges were originally filed in December 2012, is now charged with three counts of assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, three counts of assault by a public officer and three counts of filing a false report, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Jackson’s arrest was the first to come after the FBI began investigating deputy misconduct within the Los Angeles County jail system, the largest in the nation. Federal authorities later indicted 18 current and former members of the Sheriff’s Department. A month later, Sheriff Lee Baca announced his resignation effective at the end of this month.

Jackson’s arrest resulted from an internal sheriff’s investigation, according to The Times. The 36-year-old is alleged to have kicked and bloodied up inmate Derek Griscavage on Christmas Day 2010 at Twin Towers jail in downtown Los Angeles.

Griscavage said in a sworn statement that he suffered a broken nose, black eyes, a cut to his ear, a swollen head and a chipped tooth.
