Last week the LCSO has been very busy with Bailiff Duties and Courthouse Security due to a 4-day bench. Judge David Miller took the case under advisement and will render his verdict in the near future.
The previous week the LCSO was busy with Court, Courthouse Security and Bailiff Duties. Monday was Circuit Court Civil Law Day, Tuesday was Circuit Court Criminal Law Day, and Wednesday was Associate Circuit Court Criminal and Traffic Law Day. On August 15 and 16 the LCSO had at least 32 detainees appear before the respective Courts. Most of these were returned to detention, some were sentenced to prison or county jail time, and a few were released on bond or for other reasons.
Recently additional staff was summoned to the Courthouse due to a disruptive inmate. A male detainee apparently was not using his brain well enough to ask the deputy or detention officer to use the restroom when he was returning to the transport van from his appearance. The detainee decided to then throw a huge fit in the van and when removed to use the restroom. The man was vulgar, profane, and basically a complete jerk to deal with and was then removed from the Courthouse and returned to the transport van.
August 12 Deputy Chris Mueller represented the LCSO at the funeral of Clinton Police Officer Gary Michael.
At the time of this press release the LCSO had 28 people in custody at the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail, 8 of which are female detainees.
