Our report in today's Bee provides a glimpse into the case of five correctional officers who, according to the State Personnel Board, were unjustly fired last year for allegedly abusing an inmate in 2011.
The story builds on a heavily-redacted 33-page proposed decision by Teri Block, one of the board's administrative law judges. Block includes a detailed narrative of events based on investigations and testimony and then dissects lapses in the investigation.
We've embedded Block's October decision below followed by board's final decision from January. Corrections officials asked for reconsideration, which the board rejected.
