Corrections Officer Faces Assault Charge; Four Others Face Discipline for Failure to Acknowledge Incident with Inmate


********************CORRECTION March 16, 2005

A deputy on patrol found a car involved in an accident that claimed the life of Bridget Hagen of Palatka about 7 a.m. Sunday. Because of incorrect information from the Clay County Sheriff's Office, the day the vehicle was located was wrong on Page B-4 Tuesday.

***********

A Jacksonville corrections officer faces a criminal charge and four others could be disciplined after an investigation into the assault of a female inmate last summer, Sheriff John Rutherford said Monday.

Authorities arrested corrections officer Tiffany Wade, 24, alleging she twice slapped an inmate with the back of her hand while the woman was shackled and handcuffed at the Duval County jail in August.

Corrections officer Rosalyn Cotten-Francis witnessed the incident along with three other corrections officers but didn't acknowledge what happened after inmate Dyna Foote filed a complaint, Rutherford said.

Wade, 24, was released Monday from the Clay County jail on the misdemeanor charge after posting $1,503 bail.

Wade has been a corrections officer for two years. She is suspended from her job without pay pending termination and authorities also will move to fire Francis-Cotten for an administrative charge of departing from the truth, the sheriff said.

Officers Shirley Haywood, Rose Woolery and Tammy Daniels will get written reprimands, which don't involve loss of pay, Rutherford said.

BODY FOUND IN POND

A body found in a pond at a Jacksonville apartment complex Monday is believed to be a woman whose family reported her missing Friday.

Homicide Sgt. Evander Collier said police do not suspect foul play in the case and were waiting for a confirmation of the woman's identity. He said the woman was wearing clothing that matched the description of Elesia Jones Sanders, 42, and was found near her apartment.

Collier said police were called to the Logan's Point Apartments, 3544 St. Johns Bluff Road S., just before 4 p.m. after a resident of the complex saw the body in the water.

Sanders was reported missing by family members who said they had not seen her since Monday, March 7.
