A Dallas County sheriff’s jail guard was arrested this morning at work.
Marie Ross was hired in 2001 and had recently applied to be a sheriff’s deputy. A background check showed she was in the country illegally. County Commissioner John Wiley Price tells KRLD every once in awhile something slips through the cracsk. He says Marie performed admirably.
Price says vetting officer more often would be the sheriff’s call. Ross now faces deportation. She was on a team to ensure jails were in compliance with regard to safety and sanitation.
