Star-Banner - 08-15


A brutal assault on an inmate in the Marion County Jail resulted in injuries to the 43-year-old man and additional charges for four other inmates. Two inmates — Juan Pagan-Ayala, 29, and Cecil Eugene Wryals, 37 — were charged with sexual battery and aggravated battery. A Sheriff's Office investigation found that, during the violent assault, Pagan-Ayala put on a latex glove and shoved his hand into the victim's rectum, apparently searching for drugs.
