The case of a Huron County corrections officer having a black eye in connection with suspected domestic violence is now in the hands of prosecutors.
“I filed that case (Friday) with the Mansfield city law director’s office,” Richland County Sheriff’s Capt. Eric Bosko said.
Bosko opened his investigation April 26 because the possible domestic violence incident involving one of the woman’s black eyes happened in his jurisdiction.
“So I’ve concluded the investigation, submitted my findings and met with the assistant law director, Mike Kimmer. It’s been turned over to them for a charge request and I’m just waiting for them to review it — and either approve or deny my case,” Bosko said.
The suspect, a sergeant with the Norwalk Police Department, is accused of hitting his girlfriend, a corrections officer, in the right eye with a “full 20-ounce bottle of Diet Coke during a domestic dispute” when they were returning from an unspecified trip, according to a report with the Huron County Sheriff’s Office.
