(Release Date 06/18/10) Former CCSO Detention Deputy Jeffery Fontaine was arrested for the offense of Grand Theft. An arrest warrant was issued and executed by Clay County detectives on June 17th. Fontaine was booked on this charge and bonded out on a $2,500 bond. As a probationary employee of the agency, he was not entitled to an internal investigation of his offense and was terminated from employment with our agency yesterday prior to his arrest. Fontaine was hired by the CCSO in June 2009 and assigned to duties in the Clay County Jail.
Ch. 119.07 allows past/present law enforcement and corrections employees to request their booking photo and personal information be withheld. Fontaine has made such a request under this statute, so his booking photo is not releasable and his personal information is redacted from the attached reports.
