A former Summit County sheriff's deputy has been charged with abusing a 4-year-old boy.

Corey Staley, 33, was charged Wednesday with second-degree felony child abuse in 3rd District Court. He resigned of his own accord from the sheriff's office, said Summit County Attorney David Brickey, though he was not sure of the date of Staley's resignation.

Staley was caring for the boy on April 12 when the child started crying. Staley became frustrated and choked him with enough force to leave marks and scratches, according to charging documents. He also injured the boy by twisting his arm. A 6-year-old child witnessed the abuse, the charges state.
