Dale County Jail Riot Trial

An inmate from the Dale County Jail stood before a judge Tuesday to learn his fate after an incident that happened in May.

Katoni Robzelle Tellis stood before a judge in the Dale County Courthouse for charges on beating several jail correction officers.

In May, Tellis and another inmate, Kent Stewart attacked jailers with a homemade knife and one of the jailer's own taser.

District Attorney Kirke Adams says Tellis' trial began Monday and will most likely wrap up Wednesday afternoon.

Correction officer Dusty Cooper's step-father, Matthew Davidson, was in court as his step-son testified and says he is proud of him for being strong throughout the whole process.

The date for inmate Kent Stewart has yet to be set.
