Prison Guards to Go to Trial in Beating Case

Rogers State Prison Rogers State Prison

Seven former guards will face trial for beating prisoners at Rogers State Prison in Tattnall County. The grand jury indicted them for making false statements and misdemeanor assault charges.

Last May, former guard Tommy Cardell reported that he had seen several beatings at the prison and the warden knew about them.

There is no word yet on a trial date.
