INDIANAPOLIS - A former Marion County Sheriff's deputy accused of assaulting an inmate in 2012 was sentenced Friday.
David Carrico had been a deputy with the department for seven years when he was accused of kicking, punching and slamming an inmate into the floor .
The incident was captured on video at the Arrestee Processing Center.
"Carrico threw Hooks to the floor, got on top of him and forced him against the floor surface," MCSD said in a release at the time. "It appeared in the video that at no time did Hooks resist or fight."
On Friday, a Marion County Judge sentenced Carrico to one year of home detention and one year of probation, to be served concurrently.
“We work with and rely on our police partners every day, but clearly we cannot give them a pass if we believe an officer’s conduct steps over the line,” Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said. “We felt that this case deserved a felony conviction and are pleased to see that entered by the court today.”
Carrico was fired from the sheriff's department after the allegations came to light.
