An inmate at the Clay county jail has been charged in connection with an assault of a jailer.

Eighteen-year-old Corey Wilhite was charged with assault on persons in a certain occupation in connection with the alleged incident. The Clay County Sheriff’s Office says Wilhite was arrested on October ninth after he allegedly became uncooperative with jail staff.
