A Summit County Sheriff Deputy is terminated as he's accused of requesting favors from jail inmates in exchange for privileges.
Summit County Sheriff Inspector Bill Holland says Deputy Dominic Martucci faces violations including conduct unbecoming of an officer and humane treatment of jail inmates.
"Inmates were asked to perform acts in exchange for privileges at the jail," Holland said.
"They weren't sexual in nature."
The details of the alleged favors and privileges were not made immediately available.
Martucci's firing Wednesday was also in connection to additional violations including cellphone use while working and not meeting deadlines for filing proper jail inmate paperwork.
Holland says the department does investigate a wide variety of policy disputes, but he admits that this isn't an incident they run into often.
"Conduct unbecoming is kind of a general rule and regulation that can translate into a lot of things, but basically , this particular situation is somewhat unique to what we see," he said.
At this time, Martucci is not facing any criminal charges.
Martucci is the son of retired Akron Police Detective Frank Martucci, who ran unsuccessfully for Summit County Sheriff in the March Democratic Primary.
In 2006, Dominic Martucci and other deputies faced criminal charges in the death of inmate Mark McCullough Jr. Those charges were dismissed after another deputy was aquitted on a murder charge.
