ATLANTA –– Federal agents have arrested two more Fulton County jail officers for allegedly lying to federal agents in an investigation of inmate abuse.

The officers are the fourth and fifth to be charged in a case that began as an investigation into the death of inmate Richard Glasco in March 2008.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Atlanta, detention officers Derontay Anton Langford, 34, of Fairburn, and Mitnee Markette Jones, 46, of Atlanta, were charged with filing a false report, making a false statement to federal agents and obstruction of justice.

They were scheduled to make their first appearance in court before federal Magistrate Chris Hagey on Monday.

Little more than a week ago, two lieutenants in the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office were arrested and pleaded innocent to federal charges they beat up a prisoner and then tried to cover it up.

And on March 20, the first deputy arrested in the federal investigation, Curtis Jerome Brown Jr., 41 of Lithonia, was charged with beating a mentally ill inmate, who later died.
