Council to decide fate of Asst. Police Chief

April 19, 2004

Sylvester- Assistant Sylvester Police Chief Charles Thurmond and two other officers were suspended in February following the death of a man they arrested.

37 year old Herman Jackson died after his larynx was crushed. A grand jury refused to indict the officers and Monday night, the Sylvester City Council is expected to decide whether to reinstate Thurmond. The other two officers were reinstated last month.

A group that wants Thurmond fired is holding a rally at the Worth County Courthouse before the meeting.
