2 corrections officers fired over stun gun use
(MIAMI HERALD) VERO BEACH, Fla. — A Florida Department of Corrections spokeswoman say a sergeant and a lieutenant at two correctional facilities have been fired after complaints of the use of stun guns on children that were visiting for Take Our Children to Work Day last month.
Spokeswoman Jo Ellyn Rackleff says Sgt. Charmaine Davis of the Indian River Correctional Institution in Vero Beach and Lt. Russell Bourgault of the Martin Correctional Institution in Indiantown lost their jobs.
Two employees at Indian River and four in Martin remain on paid administrative leave while the investigation continues.
A warden’s report says at the Martin facility, the corrections officers asked the children if they wanted to feel the sensation of one of the stun guns.
