Charleston County Sheriff Kristin Graziano today announced that the two Al Cannon Detention Center deputies involved with the in-custody death of Jamal Sutherland have been fired.
Sheriff Graziano issued the following statement:
“Today, I made the decision to terminate the two detention deputies involved in this case. I must weigh the interest of public safety for the community against any incident that creates even the perception of an impairment to the operation of the Detention Center for the safety of all residents, staff and our Community.”
The two terminated employees are Detention Sergeant Lindsay Fickett and Detention Deputy Brian Houle. Fickett had been employed since March 2011, while Houle was employed since July 2016.
