Coryell County Jailer Under Arrest

A Coryell County jailer is under arrest on charges of violation of the civil rights of a person in custody and improper sexual activity with a person in custody.

October 23, 2008 a Coryell County Jailer was arrested by Deputies from the Coryell County Sheriff’s Office on two charges of Violation of Civil Rights of a Person in Custody. The charge is the culmination of an internal investigation conducted by the Coryell County Sheriff’s Office into allegations of improper conduct involving a county jailer and an inmate in custody in the County Jail.

Sheriff Burks said that when allegations are made involving an employee an immediate investigation is always ordered. It has always been my policy to aggressively pursue all allegations involving staff. In most investigations involving staff the employee is cleared of any wrong doing, but there are some that during the investigation there is probable cause to believe that a criminal violation has occurred. And when this occurs criminal charges are filed.

The allegations were made in this case on the morning of October 23, 2008 and the investigation was immediately ordered. Arrest warrants were issued on the same day, later that evening for the arrest of Richard Sammuel Linn (51 years of age). Linn was taken into custody and placed in jail at the Coryell County Jail. At the time of this press release Linn was still in custody his bond has been set at $10,000.00 per charge. Linn voluntarily resigned his employment with the County Jail.

Linn had been employed as a jailer since November 2007.

The charge is a State Jail Felony with a punishment of not less than 180 days or more than 2 years confinement in a State Jail Facility if convicted. Also a fine can be imposed of not more than $10,000.00.

  1. I was tormented…lead to believe my life was in danger. You have absolutely no idea the fear and cruel mental torture I was forced to endure at the hands of the guards in Coryell County Jail

  2. In a nation wherein “In GOD We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, corruption and wickedness exist on both sides of the badge and the bars. Yet, are they bad men just because they made some bad choices? Do not all of us have A’s and F’s on our moral report cards? As I so stated on my blog, we can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. I dare anyone who wants to fix their F’s to read that textbook in sex education and then to trust in GOD…and that’s my final answer!
