Head of regional jail in Devils Lake fired

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) -- The operations administrator of the regional jail in Devils Lake has been fired.

The Lake Region Law Enforcement Center board of directors voted 5-3 Wednesday to fire Denny Deegan after months of controversy.

Issues have included staff shortages leading to an inability to house juvenile offenders, resignations and criminal charges filed against a male officer who allegedly had sexual contact with a female inmate.

Ramsey County Sheriff Steve Nelson will be in charge of the LEC until a new operations administrator is hired. The facility also has a separate finance administrator.
