DESOTO COUNTY, Fla.- Jurors in federal court could reach a verdict today in the beating of a Desoto County inmate.

Jody Holland was badly bruised last summer, when prosecutors say a former corrections deputy slammed his head against a concrete wall.

Another former deputy is on trial for trying to cover up the whole thing.

If convicted, both men could face 30 years in prison.
