County denies wrongdoing in lawsuit against sheriff's deputies

Posted:

FAYETTE COUNTY (WVVA) - Fayette County denies any wrongdoing in a federal lawsuit against four members of the sheriff's department.

County Attorney Carl Harris says the case will be handled by a law firm in Charleston, where the federal suit was filed.

In the complaint, Patricia Cole of Ansted alleges four sheriff's deputies struck her son in the face, head, legs and chest for no reason.

Her son was at his cousin's house when deputies responded to a domestic call in December 2010.

The Coles are seeking damages.
