More Harrison County Deputies To Face Charges Friday

More Harrison County deputies will face charges in the Harrison County jail beating case. WLOX News has learned as many as three deputies will be charged Friday with crimes relating to the death of Jesse Lee Williams.

Williams was beaten at the jail in February of last year, and died a few days later. Since then, five deputies have been indicted and pleaded guilty to charges related to jail beatings.

Another jailer, Ryan Teel, pleaded not guilty. Two weeks ago, he was on bond until his trial which is set for May 28th, though he's confined to his home. 

The latest deputies to accused are scheduled to appear in Federal Court in Gulfport Friday morning.
