Texas prison guards indicted in prisoner beating www.privateofficer.com
The Amarillo Globe-News reported Wednesday that a fourth indicted guard retired after the June 2010 incident at the Clements Unit.
A Potter County grand jury on March 9 indicted John Jowers II, Matthew Borunda, Robert Nixon and Jeremy Bevill on misdemeanor official oppression charges. Conviction carries a penalty of up to a year in jail.
Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark says Jackie Ronald Green is serving a life term for a 2007 killing in Smith County. Clark says Green was either threatening to or throwing things at the guards.
TCDJ fired Borunda, Nixon and Bevill shortly after the incident. Clark says Jowers resigned.
