A Portage County jail corrections officer is now a former corrections officer -- and facing felony assault charges in connection with injuries to an inmate.
Sheriff David Doak says Connie Sutton of Akron was fired from her job on being indicted on one count of felonious assault after an incident at the jail between Sutton and 23-year old Holly Anderson or Ravenna Township.

Sutton turned herself in and was arraigned this morning, according to the Sheriff's Department, and posted $50,000 personal recognizance bond. She was told not to have any contact with inmates at the jail or any witnesses in the case.
