  • Inmates Saved Deputy's Life During Attack

    TAMPA - The detention deputy was sitting at his desk when the inmate attacked. The deputy is 64; the inmate 40 years his junior.

    Deputy Kenneth Moon had another disadvantage: He was the sole deputy in a jail pod that houses 62 inmates. The only nearby people who could help him were there because they have been charged with attempted murder, home invasion, drug dealing.

    And yet they did.

    The first one, Jerry Dieguez Jr., is in jail on an armed home invasion charge. When he saw inmate Douglas Burden put Moon in a chokehold, Dieguez didn't hesitate.

    He ran behind the desk and landed a haymaker of a punch on Burden.

    Inmates Hoang Vu and Terrell Carswell also provided backup. Vu is charged with attempted murder; Carswell with robbery, marijuana possession, cocaine trafficking and failure to register as a sex offender. He also has a charge of obstructing an officer.

    While Dieguez, Vu and Carswell kept Burden off the deputy, another inmate came charging over.

    David Schofield, who's in jail on aggravated assault and battery charges, reached over to the deputy, took his radio and called for help.

    The inmates are credited with saving their jailer's life.

      Ya, just found that one. I skimmed through to make sure it wasn't a double post but apparently I missed it. The other post even has the video

        Yeah but this one tells the story. I can't view very many websites from the computer here at work so I always appreciate the stories that are pasted in the post.

            I dont know much about corrections but is it normal to have only 1 officer for 62 inmates?

              We have several units that have 1 officer for 100 inmates.
              and
              3 for 330
              5 for 475

              Yea 1=62 is pretty standard or even a bit high of a ratio
              My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS
