Inmates Get Reward For Guard Rescue

Published: Thursday, November 5, 2009 at 12:01 a.m.

Four inmates who came to the rescue of a jail guard being attacked by another inmate may be getting some help of their own.

Deputy Larry McKinnon said Thursday the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office will write letters to the inmates’ attorneys that can be used on their behalf in court.

The inmates helped save 64-year-old detention deputy Kenneth Moon on Monday afternoon when inmate Douglas Emanuel Burden charged him, put him in choke hold and began strangling him.

Four inmates saw the commotion and came to Moon’s aid, including one who reached for the deputy’s radio and called for emergency assistance.

The men are in jail for charges including home invasion and attempted murder.
