History

One of the first jails in Erie County was built in 1842. The next jail was built between 1882 and 1883. That jail was built by Adam Feick and Brother in the Eastlake civic building style. The building had 26 cells and a Sheriff's residence. This building was made of stone and cost $45,750. It had a heating apparatus added for another thousand. This building became part of the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. In 2002, it was purchased by the Sandusky Library and was combined with the library building. Another jail was built in 1977. The current jail was built in 1990. Sheriff John Magnuson championed for that jail.

On January 12, 1987, Erie County Prosecutor's Office Investigator Michael Capizzi was taking training in London, Ohio. The class was on child abuse. While crossing State Highway 56, he was struck by a car and killed. While he had only been part of the Prosecutor's Office for two years, he had been a deputy with the Sheriff's Department for eleven years prior to that.

On April 7, 1979, Richard Leber was worried that his brother Eugene was going to commit suicide. He called law enforcement. By the time that Erie County Deputy Sheriff Steven Smith and Sergeant Stanley Barrett arrived, Eugene had driven off. The two members of the Sheriff's Department drove off in search of Eugene. After a pursuit that became high speed, the two officers pulled him over. Smith got out of his patrol car, pulled his service pistol, and ran to Leber's car. Smith slipped on ice and fell. When he landed, his pistol went off. The bullet hit Leber, who became paralyzed. Leber took the county to court and won millions.

In 2012, Curtis Clinton killed Heather Jackson, her three year old daughter Celina, and her infant son Wayne. He also raped Jackson and her daughter. He was caught on camera entering the residence. He was also under investigation for the rape and choking of a seventeen year old. He was convicted for all of it in Erie County court. He tried to appeal but failed each time.
