Jail Employee Offered Her Job Back

The mother of a cancer patient, who says she was fired for taking too much sick leave to care for her son, has been offered her job back.

Rashel Coatney says she was fired last week from her job as a corrections officer at the Fayette County Detention Center for taking at least 80 percent of her paid leave.

The jail has now offered her 90 days of unpaid leave and after that, she will be placed on six months probation.

Coatney says she is still deciding whether she wants to take that offer.
