On May 24, 2023, a Correction Officer from the Oneida County Correctional Facility was arrested after an investigation that was conducted by the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division.

According to Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol, Jacob M. Mayo, age 31, was arrested after an investigation determined that Mayo entered required inmate supervision tours into the facility log, but never actually conducted any such tours of the unit he was assigned.

An investigation was initiated after an incident occurred within that unit and Sheriff’s Deputy’s deposed Mayo regarding the incident. Once the facility surveillance video was received by investigators, it became apparent that Mayo had not conducted any such tours of the unit and had in fact given them a false written statement regarding the incident.

Mayo was arrested on misdemeanor charges of falsifying business records in the second degree and making a punishable false written statement. He was issued an appearance ticket returnable to the Town of Whitestown Court at a later date. Mayo has been employed as a Correction Officer since October 2019 and has since been suspended with pay pending an internal investigation into the matter.
