Former Curry County Detention Officers Off the Hook

Two former Curry County detention officers accused of beating an inmate will not have to defend themselves in court. 

 A grand jury decided not to indict the two men who were arrested in February on charges of aggravated battery against an inmate.

Officials say the grand jury did not find sufficient probable cause against the officers.

The defense attorney says the panel determined the officers were subduing an agressive inmate who had struggled with them, spit on one of their faces, and assaulted them.

No word on whether the two officers will be able to get their jobs back.
