RICHMOND COUNTY, Ga (WRDW)-The Richmond County Sheriff's Office did not find enough evidence to move forward with a criminal violation for the incident involving a deputy's taser, according to a release.
A child was hurt by Deputy Kevin Butler's taser when another child inside the house accidentally used it on June 30, deputies said.
Deputy Butler was disciplined for the policy violation of duty to care for county property, but investigators did not find the incident warranted criminal charges, the Sheriff's Office said.
The Sheriff's Office forwarded their file to the DA's Office, which agreed with its findings, the release said.
