FORT MYERS, FL.--43-year old Jody Holland says Desoto County deputies beat him multiple times while in jail last May.
WINK News has learned former Desoto County Sheriff's office Captain, Raymond Kugler, has been sentenced to 3 years probation and must serve 150 hours of community service.
Kugler's attorney, Joe Viacava, says it was the outcome he hoped for.
"I feel if any case deserved it, it was Mr. Kugler. He has been a model client and has been very remorseful," said Viacava.
Kugler plead guilty for lying to authorities about the beating.
Holland was in jail for battery and violating a restraining order. The woman who brought those charges against him worked on the jail medical staff and the two lived together.
Holland's attorney told WINK News last year that he believes Desoto deputies slammed Holland's head in to a concrete wall and beat him to pay him back for what he allegedly did to their fellow employee.
At the time, four deputies were put on administrative leave.
Two of them were indicted for lying to authorities, obstruction of justice and depriving Holland of his civil rights.
