Guards Plead Not Guilty To Assaulting Juvenile Inmate
Three guards at the Scioto Juvenile Correctional Facility have pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges related to the assault of an inmate last March. 31-year-old Laurel Jeffreys was fired while 28-year-old Nathaniel Strong and 48-year-old Antonio Keith are on the job. A preliminary State Highway Patrol report says five guards are suspected of assaulting an unnamed inmate. The patrol and prisons officials have not released his name or condition.
