A Sheriff's Department corrections officer has
been charged with stealing between $3,000 and $4,000
from the county jail commissary account,
Washtenaw County Sheriff Thomas Minick announ-
Ken Scott, 33, was arrested and arraigned Monday
on felony charges. He was also fired from his job at
the Sheriff's Department, where he had worked since
MINICK SAID THE department became aware of
the theft in late January. After a routine audit and in-
tensive investigation, information was obtained that
resulted in Scott's arrest, he said.
Minick said he was "embarrassed" by the whole
incident and "sorry it happened." But, he added, he
is confident Scott was the only person involved in the
The commissary account contains funds used by
county jail inmates to buy goods such as cigarettes
and chewing gum at stores in the jail. Friends or
relatives may deposit money for use by inmates, ac-
cording to Minick.
THE SHERIFF WAS quick to add that no inmates
will lose any services or money as a result of the
theft. Even if no money is recovered, Minick said, the
county will replace the missing cash.
Minick said Scott's duties as a corrections officer
did not give him access to the account. He did not say
how Scott could get into the account. Only one county
employee has access to the account, according to the
County officials have no plans to change the system
because of the theft, Minick said.
"The system is good. It broke down because of one
individual, not because of the system," he said.
The "system" involves regular audits of the
various functions of the Sheriff's Department.
Undersheriff Kirk Profit added that "without the
present system, Scott might not have been caught so
Minick claimed Scott had been stealing the funds
since late last September or early October.

Bar patron charges
bouncer with brutality
Daily Classifieds Get Results
By JANET RAE
Former Second Chance bouncer Ed-
ward Abbott is once again the defen-
dant in a lawsuit charging the bar
management with encouraging the use
of violence against patrons.
Abbot, 23, was acquitted in January
in a case which claimed he severely
beat a customer in March, 1980.
Ronald Schatzle, who claims he was
assaulted by Abbot in an unprovoked
incident two years ago, filed suit last
week in Washtenaw County Circuit
Court. He has requested that a jury
decide the suit, which seeks award of
more than $10,000 in damages from Ab-
bott and nightclub owners.
According to the suit filed by Elmer
White, Schatzle's attorney, Schatzle
was standing in the nightclub's
vestibule in the early morning hours of
March 27, 1979, waiting to be admitted.
"Bouncers hada person on the floor
and were kicking and repeatedly
bashing his head against the cement
floor even though the person was
bleeding and was unconscious," Schat-
Schatzle claims Abbott then, without
cause, punched him in the face and
knocked him out.hThe plaintiff alleges
that he regained consciouness in the in-
tensive care unit of University
The suit also charges that Abbott had
been drinking alcoholic beverages while
White said bouncers at the nightclub
are encouraged to use violence when
dealing with patrons. The bar's motto,
White added, is: "At the Second Chan-
ce, you don't get one."
