Court documents: Arrested jail deputy falsified log entries of inmate checkups© Provided by TEGNA Inc. Off-duty Bexar County detention deputy arrested after inmate's death One day after an off-duty Bexar County Jail deputy was arrested on charges of tampering with government records, court documents are revealing more details surrounding his alleged falsifying of log books at the detention center.

Those log entries were investigated following the death of a jail inmate in March.

Mishal Mathew, 23, was placed on administrative leave on April 5, just over a year after joining the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office. According to an affidavit for his arrest, Mathew worked a morning shift at the jail in a unit “classified as high-risk, but (one which) only requires hourly observation checks to be in compliance with state statutory standards.”

Maleah Davis: Man who was watching her likely to be charged with murder, court documents say The man who was watching 4-year-old Maleah Davis before she vanished has been arrested after blood evidence found in his apartment was linked to that of the missing child, Houston police said.

Guards at the jail where Jeffrey Epstein is believed to have killed himself last weekend are suspected of falsifying log entries to show they were checking on inmates in his unit every 30 minutes when they were in fact not, according to.

Falsifying documents is a criminal offense that involves the altering, changing, modifying, passing or possessing of a document for an unlawful purpose. It is considered a white collar crime and can be called by different names depending on your state, or be included as part of other collateral crimes.

Those checks, the affidavit states, are recorded twofold: via hand-written entry in log books, as well as an electronic system to be inputted in person.

On the morning of March 29, however, there were inconsistencies in Mathew’s logged hourly cell checks, according to the affidavit. On one check of the facility’s cells, Mathew logged a written entry that was not matched in the electronic system. And he “was witnessed not conducting his check by the relieving corridor deputy, indicating a false entry,” the affidavit reads.

Those discrepancies were discovered in an investigation of the morning’s log entries following the same-day death of an inmate, who passed away at a local hospital following a suspected medical episode.

Mathew, according to the court document also advised a sergeant at the jail “to observe an inmate in cell 3 whose condition was concerning.” No written log was made for that check on Mathew’s part, but an electronic one was.

– A Broward County sheriff's detention deputy was arrested Tuesday after she knowingly and repeatedly made false entries on records maintained in the official jail management system logbook, the Broward Sheriff's Office said. She faces seven counts of falsifying a public or court document .

He later “admitted to failing to do his observation check, indicating a false entry in the hand-written log book" during the earlier cell check, the affidavit states. That would have included observing the cell of 45-year-old Jarnell Kimble on the morning before he died.

The charge of tampering with government records is a third-degree felony.

Jail inspection records show the Bexar County Jail struggled to be consistent with face-to-face checkups of inmates by deputies, failing twice in that regard between February and May.
