Ex-corrections officer gets probation

BEULAH — A judge sentenced a former Benzie County Sheriff’s Department corrections officer to two years of probation.

Douglas Ray Randolph, 37, pleaded guilty in July to interfering with a police investigation. Benzie Sheriff Robert Blank fired Randolph in 2006 after an investigation into a relationship he had with a female inmate, and Randolph admitted during his plea that he lied to investigators as they probed the relationship.

He filed a union grievance after his firing, but an arbitrator eventually upheld the decision. Authorities charged him with the misdemeanor interference count shortly after.
