Glanz Says Tulsa Jail Broke Rules in Assault Case

File photo

A former Tulsa County sheriff has admitted in federal court that policies on housing juvenile girls at the jail were violated multiple times in 2010 during a time in which a woman says she was repeatedly sexually assaulted while detained there.

Stanley Glanz's admissions were made during questioning by an attorney for the now 23-year-old woman whose civil rights trial is underway this week. Glanz is a defendant in the woman's 2011 lawsuit.

Glanz retired Nov. 1, a day after a grand jury indicted him on a charge of refusal to perform his official duty and willful violation of a law. The latter charge deals with acceptance of a vehicle stipend while also using a county vehicle. Both offenses are misdemeanors.
