Testimony resumes in Orleans Parish jail hearing

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Testimony resumed today in the hearing to decide if Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman will maintain control of the new parish jail.

Margo Frasier, a corrections expert, testified yesterday about sexual assaults at the jail.

In one case she questioned the decision to house an inmate with a history of sexual assault with an inmate on suicide watch.

The U. S. Department of Justice says the jail should be turned over to a third party.
