THOMASVILLE — Two Thomasville men charged with dogfighting last fall have been indicted by Thomas County grand jurors.

Jurors also indicted a former jailer on charges she had sexual contact with a Thomas County Jail inmate.

Indictments were returned on Clemson Graham on charges of dogfighting and violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act (GCSA).

In addition to a dog-fighting indictment, Roosevelt Holland Jr. was indicted on a charge of obstruction of officers.

Holland fled from 107 Sunnyland Circle, the site of the Oct. 5 midafternoon dogfight. Police gave chase on foot and caught him several blocks away.

The two dogs fighting in a metal, enclosed pit in the back yard, several scarred dogs tied with chains and two puppies were removed from the scene by Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society animal control personnel.

Graham and Holland listed addresses on Ruth Lane and Westover Street, respectively.

The suspects owned the fighting dogs and were responsible for the fight, a Thomasville Police Department officer said at the dogfight scene.

Jurors also returned indictments on Beverly Simmons, who was charged in October with sexual assault involving a male inmate and with violation of oath of office.

Simmons told Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents last fall she took an inmate from a cell to an office area, where sexual contact took place.

She told investigators she and the inmate engaged in fondling and kissing.
