Myron Nelson, 30 worked as a civilian detention officer until he abused his power and hit an inmate with out reason.

After he struck a male Harris County Jail inmate one time without provocation in February 2013, he was indicted on the misdemeanor charge of official oppression as a result.

“The only way to run an accountable law enforcement agency that maintains the trust of the public is to have a workforce that does a great job when the public can see it or not, and to enforce the law against our own in the rare occasion when they break it,” Sheriff Adrian Garcia said. “That is what we do.”
