LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - One of the Metro Corrections officers involved in the beating of a handcuffed inmate inside the Louisville jail has pleaded guilty to federal charges.
The WAVE 3 News Troubleshooters broke this story last year.
Body camera footage shows Terry Whitehead handcuffed in a holding cell while an officer punches him.
Thursday, Devan Edwards admitted in court that he and David Schwartz attacked Whitehead and that he falsified the use-of-force report about the incident.
Edwards faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Schwartz and another former officer, Donna Gentry, also face federal charges.
