Former Jailer Arrested For Official Oppression

A former Hopkins County jailer, wanted on a Misdemeanor A warrant, turned himself in to Sheriff’s Deputies Tuesday morning. The man was fired two weeks ago by Hopkins County Sheriff Lewis Tatum when the jailer’s supervisor caught him in the act of official oppression of a female inmate.

Inappropriate comments made by the man to the inmate were noted, investigated, and found to be sufficient to terminate employment immediately and to file the charges. After conferring with the County Attorney, the Sheriff’s office obtained a warrant for his arrest.

This incident was found to be the first inappropriate action for the jail employee. Sheriff Tatum stated that there will be no cover up during his administration and that any Sheriff’s Office employee, at any level, will be arrested as would anyone else who breaks the law.

The individual’s name was not released due to the fact the charge is a misdemeanor.
