MCDC Employee Accused of Hitting Child, Allowing Fighting

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office has released the name of the staff member who was arrested for allowing fighting at the Monroe County Children's Detention Center.

Twenty-three-year-old John Kanu of Greece faces a misdemeanor charge of endangering a child.

He was arrested after a supervisor learned on November 23 that Kanu allowed two young people to fight in a bathroom.

The sheriff's office says Kanu allowed them to engage in "slap boxing," and he was seen on camera hitting a juvenile in the face.

Kanu has been fired and given a court appearance ticket.
