A senior Superior Court judge heard arguments Wednesday involving two terminated Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies and an inmate who escaped in July 2013. Former deputies Jack Dodd and Larry Henslee were fired a week after the escape of James Edward Cantrell on July 16, 2013, during a transport from the Hall County Jail to the courthouse. Following two reversals by the Hall County Civil Service Board, Hall County Sheriff Gerald Couch appealed the ruling, saying the board’s decision was not supported by fact.
