Former Isabella prison guard convicted of assaulting inmate – The Morning Sun

Courtesy photo Isabella County commissioners recently obtained a preliminary feasibility study looking at the space needs of the county building, magistrate court, sheriff's department and jail.

A former Isabella prison guard was sentenced to probation, an anger management course and will never work in corrections again for assaulting an inmate in 2020.

Christopher Cluley, 48, of Mt. Pleasant, was sentenced Thursday to one year of probation for the jail assault of an Isabella County inmate, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced.

Cluley pleaded no contest to one count of aggravated assault and willful neglect of duty in April.

Per his plea agreement, Cluley was required to sign an affidavit of decertification and an agreement not to recertify as a correctional officer, meaning he will never work as a correctional officer in Michigan again.

He will also have to undergo an assessment and anger management classes.

“Thanks to the work of the Isabella County Sheriff's Department, the Michigan State Police and our Public Integrity Unit, Mr. Cluley was permanently barred from working as a corrections officer in our state and can no longer harm inmates,” Nessel said.

“My office remains committed to ensuring that officers who violate their oath to protect and serve are held accountable. »
