Former Deputy Gets Probation for Violating Inmate's Rights
Buffalo, NY (WBEN) A former Erie County Correctional Facility deputy gets probation for violating the civil rights of an inmate.
54 year old Josephine Cutolo was convicted of depriving the inmate's rights under color of law.
Prosecutors say Cutolo was present after a fight involving two inmates. While one of them was in handcuffs and being escorted by other deputies, prosecutors say she sprayed him with OC chemical spray and asked how he liked it.
Cutolo gets one year probation, which includes six months home detention with electronic monitoring.
