Two now-former Oklahoma County jail employees, Gregory Cornell Butler Jr. and Christian Charles Miles, both 21, and their supervisor, Christopher Raymond Hendershott, 50, face misdemeanor cruelty charges. Investigators discovered they forced at least four inmates to stand handcuffed for multiple hours and made to listen to the popular children’s song “Baby Shark” on repeat.
