Two corrections officers were injured in an attack at the Muskegon County Jail on Thursday.
Aug 30, 2013

Sheriff Dean Roesler said an inmate attacked two deputies near a second-floor housing unit at about 3:45 p.m. Terry Raap, 26, attacked the deputies with weapons made from Plexiglas and pieces of concrete placed in a sock, Roesler said.

The attack was without warning and without provocation, according to authorities.

The injured deputies are 25-year and 19-year veterans of the county corrections unit.

Raap has been a prisoner at the Muskegon County Jail since October 2012 for operating a meth lab. He is also a habitual offender with prior felony convictions for second-degree criminal sexual conduct in 2007; and assaulting, resisting or obstructing an officer in 2005.



What ever happened to truth in sentencing or the "three strikes and you are out" rule for criminals?


In the long run to expensive.......i.e. California
