A police officer — who beat a 16-year-old girl in a New Orleans juvenile detention center on Sept. 23, 2014 — was not charged, but was awarded 38 days of back pay by the New Orleans Civil Service Commission.
Terrance Saulny was fired for beating a teenage girl with metal shackles, and tried to get his job back, but the commission refused to reinstate him, notes the New Orleans Advocate.
At the time of the incident, the teen girl booked into the Youth Study Center on counts of robbery and resisting arrest.
After Saulny placed the girl in a holding cell, she allegedly began kicking the door and demanding to be let out.
Saulny tentered the cell with four-point shackles after she allegedly ignored his demands to be quiet.
Saulny reportedly pushed the girl, struck her twice with the shackles and forced his forearm under her chin before another officer arrived to help get the girl in the restraints.
