Exams delayed for Wayne County deputies accused of prisoner assaults
The preliminary examinations for several Wayne County Sheriff's deputies accused of assaulting jail inmates in three separate incidents have been rescheduled to Friday.
Five deputies appeared Monday in Detroit's 36th District Court, where the hearings were adjourned to Friday.
Meanwhile, another deputy has taken a plea deal and is expected to testify in one of the cases.
Denario Adolphus, 29, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Christine Kowal said.
Adolphus had been charged with assault with intent to cause great bodily harm, misconduct in office and aggravated assault in connection with the February 2010 assault of a 35-year-old male inmate. Also charged in that case are deputies Matthew Czarnecki, Allan Oliver and Marcus Hall.
In addition, Czarnecki and Oliver are charged with assault with intent to cause great bodily harm, misconduct in office and filing a false felony report in connection with an alleged assault on a different 35-year-old male inmate in January 2010. Also charged in that incident are deputies Jeffery Hill and Brian Milano.
Hill and Oliver face additional charges in the reported assault of a 31-year-old male inmate in October 2009. They were charged with assault with intent to cause great bodily harm, misconduct in office, aggravated assault and filing a false felony report in that case.
Czarnecki, Oliver, Hall, Hill and Milano will be back in court Friday.
In court Monday, Kowal said she plans to make a motion to add charges of conspiracy to commit misconduct in office.
