Rutherford Co. Sheriff's Major Fired

Posted at 7:14 PM, Jan 13, 2017

Major Derrell Cagle has been fired from his position as Facility Administrator of the Rutherford County Detention Center.

In a termination letter, Deputy Chief Keith Lowery said the action was taken because of "persistent deficiencies in management."

The detention center was decertified back in December after a failed inspection.

The letter went on to say Cagle's position was no longer needed following the decertification.
