Four Douglas jail inmates are facing felony charges in East Fork Justice Court on Wednesday after a jail cell beat-down that occurred on Monday.
The four inmates appeared in East Fork Justice Court on Thursday morning, where East Fork Justice of the Peace Paul Gilbert ordered April 1 preliminary hearings.
Kevin Louis Cucuk, Randy A. Martin, Devin Nestroyl and Shawn Gary Stenzel were all booked for battery by a prisoner and their bail set at $25,000 each.
According to court documents, the victim said he was making his bed when someone shoved him into a corner and started punching and kicking him. Deputies said he suffered from a broken rib and several injuries to his face and head.
Video of the cell showed the four going into the cell and closing the door.
Martin, 35, was sentenced to prison for grand larceny of a vehicle on just a few hours prior to the 3 p.m. beating.
Cucuk, 30, was being held after he admitted to a charge of possession of a controlled substance last month.
Nestroyal, 27, faces several felonies after he was found with methamphetamine, a handgun, eight credit cards and five drivers’ licenses that didn’t belong to him, according to court documents.
Stenzel, 32, served a prison sentence for trafficking and was arrested on Feb. 22 on a fugitive warrant and a drug felony.
Battery by a prisoner is a felony carrying 1-6 year in prison.
The victim is scheduled to appear in Douglas County District Court on drug possession charges and a parole and probation hold.
