GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. - A sheriff in northeast Florida is publicly apologizing to a teen who spent 35 days in jail after an arrest mix-up.
Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler said Tuesday that the deputy has a good track record but took short-cuts in the investigation last year. The deputy was suspended and transferred to patrol.
Beseler told The Florida Times-Union that he will "seek to make things right" for the teen.
The teen has told the sheriff's office that he intends to sue.
