Sheriff’s Office Detention Deputy fired after battering detainee


A 21-year-old Sheriff’s Office Detention Deputy assigned to the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island was fired Thursday after picking up and slamming a detainee to the ground.


Sheriff Rick Ramsay fired Jacarius John Rahming after learning of the April 6 incident.


Rahming has been criminally charged with battery.


“I will not tolerate abusive behavior and demand everyone under my command act professionally at all times,” said Sheriff Ramsay. “I will always be transparent with the public, when it comes to the good as well as the bad. I want you to hear it from me first.”


The detainee was not seriously injured in the incident.


Rahming was a new employee, hired on Feb. 24, 2020. His salary was $52,195.
