    Lightbulb Sheriff's Deputy locks his nephew in a jail cell with a murderer to teach'em a lesson

    (Mugshot of James Earl Cutsinger)


    GALVESTON, Texas (AP) _ Galveston County sheriff's officials are investigating a deputy who allegedly locked his nephew in a jail cell with an accused killer.

    Deputy James Pruitt is accused of leaving his 13-year-old nephew in a cell with James Earl Cutsinger during an unauthorized tour of the county jail in February. Relatives of the boy, who was unharmed, apparently wanted him to re-examine his behavior, according to sheriff's reports.

    "This was a case of a deputy trying to do a good thing, and it just didn't end up right," Capt. Joseph Gregory, second-in-command at the county jail, said Wednesday.

    Cutsinger is jailed on a murder charge and being held on $500,000 bail. He is accused of murdering 51 year Crystal Beach businessman Daniel Kohlhofer in December of 2004.

    The investigation was launched last month after another inmate told jail officials what happened.

    Seems a little irresponsible to me. I don't think it will do much good for the boy in the long run.
