DENVER (CBS4) – Two Denver Sheriff’s deputies are being disciplined after an inmate escaped on their watch. That inmate was being held on attempted murder charges.
The two deputies transported Mauricio Venzor-Gonzales to a doctor’s appointment at Denver Health in March. The inmate managed to hop a fence and run away.
He wasn’t recaptured until months later.
Deputy Stephen Hernandez will be suspended for two weeks. Deputy Jason Leyshon will be suspended for six days.
