INDIANAPOLIS - Two deputies were fired from the Marion County Jail and could face criminal charges, officials announced Friday.
Tonya Bradley, a 14-year employee, and Marceline Daniel-Estil, a 9-year employee, are accused of "fraternization" with female inmates at the jail. They were both let go from their positions in the jail's Security Division.
Few specific details were released about the nature of the fraternization, but officials said it involves "financial matters."
Both investigations have been turned over to the Marion County Prosecutor's Office for review.
Sheriff John Layton issued the following statement:
"We evaluate, test and train our Deputies in every aspect of public trust. If one chooses a different direction after being sworn in, I will show them the pathway, out the door."
