The Marion County Sheriff's Office says two deputies at the Marion County Jail have been fired.
Sheriff's Office spokesperson Katie Carlson says Tonya Bradley and Marceline Daniel-Estil were terminated for "fraternization" with female inmates. She says the manner of fraternization involves financial matters and the Marion County Prosecutor's Office will review the case and determine if any criminal charges will be filed.
Marion County Sheriff’s Office Rules and Regulations provide that, “Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies shall not consort with, or in any way fraternize with, persons of known bad character or ill repute in a manner which shall conflict with the duties of the employee or functions of the Department.”
Bradley was a 14-year employee with the Sheriff's Office and Daniel-Estil was a nine-year employee. Both were assigned to the Jail's Security Division.
"We evaluate, test and train our Deputies in every aspect of public trust," Sheriff John Layton said. "If one chooses a different direction after being sworn in, I will show them the pathway, out the door."
