Stockton neighborhood sprayed with gunfire

San Joaquin jail guard charged in cell phone case

STOCKTON , CA - San Joaquin County jail guard Michael McCann was arraigned Monday afternoon on allegations he gave inmates cell phones and computer information.

McCann was arrested last week at the jail where he worked.  He faces two felony charges and two misdemeanor charges.

In court Monday, McCann's attorney requested that his client be released from custody, partly because it might be dangerous for him to be behind bars.

"I believe having him in a facility is a risk because he put a lot these people behind bars," said Dan Thompson.

But Judge Franklin Stephenson set McCann's bail at $50,000.  McCann is being kept at the Stanislaus County Jail in Modesto.

McCann is 40, and has worked with the San Joaquin County Sheriffs Department for nearly 10 years.
