DESOTO COUNTY, Fla.- Two former Desoto County corrections deputies have been found not guilty for their roles in the beating of an inmate, and the cover-up after the fact.  

Stephen Rizza and Jonathon Mausee were both on trial in federal court.

Late this afternoon, the US Attorney confirmed jurors handed down a not guilty verdict.

This case came about after pictures surfaced of Jody Holland's beating.      

Holland said guards beat him in the Desoto County jail last year.
