Reports allege racism, sexual misconduct in jail under Major

Major Tom Huckeby once likened the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office to a “paramilitary” operation, imbued with strong discipline and order.

But in court records and internal reports, others painted a far different picture: one where supervisors in the Tulsa Jail labeled black employees “N” in personnel files, Huckeby and others allegedly had “rampant sex” with co-workers and black inmates were assaulted for sport.

Meanwhile, supervisors at all levels in the Sheriff’s Office said they feared Huckeby — then a captain who appeared to enjoy the favor of Sheriff Stanley Glanz.
