Felony charge for inmate who kneed jailer in groin

PARAGOULD, Ark. – An inmate who allegedly kneed a jailer in the nether region will face a felony charge for the act.

It happened early Friday at the Greene County Detention Center, the report said. Deputies were dispatched in reference to battery on a correctional officer. The correctional officer, Jonathan Cook, advised authorities he was attempting to properly restrain a combative inmate, Jennifer Blagg, 25, of Kennett, Mo., when Blagg’s foot became free.

That’s when Cook said she kicked him in the groin. 

Witnesses said the kick was so hard, Cook fell on the ground.

Blagg now must answer a felony charge of second degree battery which injures a state employee or officer. The officer seemed to be OK when speaking to deputies.

  1. I want to hear the *whole* story (both sides) and think people MUST start GOING TO TRIAL. When they have to pull jurors for every case, we might see a reduction in these kinds of charges. It’s quite possible that depending on the circumstances no jury would convict!
