Former Detention Officer Due Back in Court

A former Sequoyah County Detention officer is scheduled to be back in court on Wednesday, according to court records. Amy Beth Minor, 29, is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Her case is scheduled on Judge Larry Langley's disposition docket Wednesday. Minor entered a not guilty plea to the charge when she made her first court appearance April 1. Minor was arrested after she was accused of hitting a woman over the head with a whiskey bottle during an argument over a text message. The victim told police that Minor became angry, spit on her and struck her over the head with a half-gallon whiskey bottle. The police report noted the victim was bleeding from the head. When Minor was contacted by police she said she didn't mean to hurt anybody, and that she only hit the woman after the woman attempted to hit her. Minor was off duty from her detention officer duties at the time of the incident, and was later suspended from those duties without pay. A short time later she resigned from the post. According to court records, Minor is represented by Sallisaw attorney Fourth Scoufus. Her case was continued from an earlier docket after Scoufus filed for a motion for discovery, inspection and production of exculpatory evidence. Stay tuned to KXMX or visit for the latest news.
