A Cobb County woman was arrested again after allegedly striking two deputies

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Four days after getting out of jail, a Cobb County jail woman was arrested again after allegedly striking two deputies outside the jail Friday afternoon.

Candida Rychell Summerlin, 32, of Marietta, was inside a blue Chevrolet rental car in the jails parking lot when she was asked to turn down her loud music, according to Col. Milton Beck with the Cobb County Sheriffs Office.

When she was warned the second time, Summerlin drove away, first striking Lt. Becky Westenberger with her car and then Sgt. Shane Kite, who was running to assist Westenberger, Beck said.

Summerlin then lost control of her car, hitting a post and some signs, disabling her car, according to the sheriffs office. She was then taken into custody and returned to the jail.

Ernie Johnson, 20, of Rockmart, didnt witness the car hit the deputies, but saw a deputy running after the car with a gun, he told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He said the car continued moving until it hit a curb, knocking off a tire.

The driver got out of the car after hitting the curb and was thrown to the ground by police, Johnson said. Johnson said he was at the jail visiting an inmate.

Chatham County Sheriffs Office deputy was attacked Sunday night by an inmate

A Chatham County Sheriffs Office deputy working at the jail was attacked Sunday night by an inmate.

The deputy received non-life-threatening wounds in the attack by an inmate he was watching about 11 p.m., said Gena Bilbo, sheriffs office spokeswoman.

The sheriffs office has since charged 24-year-old Derek Rogers felony obstruction of an officer with harm or injury, Bilbo said. Rogers initially faced only misdemeanor charges from Port Wentworth police.

Bilbo said the officer attacked by Rogers was working in one of the housing units when the suspect began telling him the phones werent working. The deputy asked Rogers what was going on before Rogers crossed over a platform that serves as a work station and physically assaulted the deputy even as ordered Rogers to stand down, Bilbo said.

Nearby officers helped the assaulted officer who was transported to a local hospital and treated.

    Lee County Jail almost reach full capacity

    Officials with the Lee County Jail say their facility is almost to full capacity.

    At this time, the jail is occupied with 104 inmates, which is just eight inmates shy of becoming full.

    Lee County Sheriff Reggie Rachals says, “the reason why we see so many people come through our doors is drugs. People are stealing from local residents, selling the stolen property then using that money to buy drugs.”

    Sheriff Rachals adds that during the summer months is when the jail normally hits its maximum.

    Dodge County Jail is open and ready for business.

    After two years of waiting, the Dodge County Jail is open and ready for business.

    This week, officials and inmates made the highly anticipated move into the new facility in Eastman. Crews broke ground on the building in June 2011, but because of construction problems and contract issues, the doors remained closed.

    The vacant center cost tax payers thousands of dollars in utility bills. Now Sheriff Lynn Sheffield plans on using the cells as a source of new revenue by housing inmates from other areas and hiring additional staff.

    “This has cost the county money,” Sheffield said, “and it feels good and I think the community will be happy for us.”

    The new jail currently has a leak in the ceiling, but overall he says the transition has been smooth. He plans to get it repaired as soon as possible. The inmates and administration were scheduled to move in mid-August but a water leak at the old jail sped up the process.


    An architect working with the National Institute of Corrections at Henry County

    While touring Henry Countys various correctional facilities on Tuesday, April Pottorff, an architect working with the National Institute of Corrections, made a statement that caught Sheriff Butch Baker by surprise.

    This jail is a victim, Pottorff told him.

    But after years of overcrowding, staffing issues and a lack of available funds for major repairs at the Henry County jail, Baker said Pottorffs remark made perfect sense.

    Pottorff was one of several NIC officials in New Castle this week surveying the countys correctional facilities and interviewing local officials about the past, present and future of the jail. The visit culminated in a six-plus-hour meeting Wednesday at the New Castle-Henry County library in which the NIC visitors went over their Jail and Justice System Assessment (JJSA) with city and county leaders.

    As officials prepare to decide what to do with their current jail either by renovating the current structure, moving to and remodeling an existent vacant building or constructing a completely new facility and how to pay for it, they learned Wednesday theyll likely need to refresh their entire approach to criminal justice before any construction can begin.

    That approach which could take months or even years to develop includes re-evaluating whos arrested and actually taken to jail, an inmates average length of stay and how quickly a defendant moves through the local courts system.


    New roof for the Henry County Jail.

    The Henry County Jail is getting a new roof.

    The commission considered three different bidders for the project, before going with the lowest bid at $ 17,000. The jail is an older building, and has been an ongoing expense because of its leaky roof.

    “We could have patched the roof for probably $ 4-5,000, but we would have still had the same problem. Wish we would have done this three weeks ago before all those rains came, said David Money of the Henry County Commission Chairman.

    The new commission chairman thinks that like many counties they will eventually need a new jail.
