Corrections Officer Knocked Out
The Marathon County Sheriff's Department released footage of 20-year old prisoner Frederick Morris knocking out corrections officer Julie Christensen with a single punch on March 27 shortly after lunch at the Marathon County Jail. Morris also struck another corrections officer in the face and can be seen running around while other prisoners reportedly shouted "Hope she dies".
Christensen had to go to an intensive care unit for her injuries, and Morris is charged with two counts of battery by a prisoner and one charge of aggravated battery. The video was released to a civilian review panel which was looking for ways to improve the jail's conditions.
