Hancock County corrections officer arrested

HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A corrections officer with Hancock County Sheriff's Office is facing a felony charge after a fight with his wife.

Sgt. Cody Moak was arrested Friday and charged with aggravated domestic violence.

Authorities say the arrest stems from an altercation Moak had with his wife on Thursday evening. According to deputies, Moak was arrested after a complaint was filed and investigated Friday.

Hancock County Chief Deputy Don Bass said the case is under investigation, and his agency is reviewing the case to determine whether or not the charges will impact Moak's employment with the sheriff's office. Moak is currently on unpaid administrative leave.

His bond was set at $5,000 but Hon. Jay Lagasse also placed a hold on Moak.

In a written statement, Sheriff Ricky Adam said, "Domestic violence traumatizes the victim as well as the family. We will not tolerate this kind of behavior from anyone regardless of who you are, who you know, or where you work."
