Who will monitor to ensure that every non-law enforcement person who gets charged with the same charge, gets a BS plea agreement? Based on the facts, the prosecution should not be playing games, follow the law and prosecute!!! Another example of the joke our justice system has become!!

Yes Hill, I would love to be suspended with pay indefinitely. I believe that a clause should be inserted in their contracts that says if you are found guilty or accept dismissal or quitting to avoid prosecution, repayment of suspension pay be mandatory!

This is a sad case but justice should not be influenced by emotion. Continuation of pay until guilt is proven or admitted has a big flaw. If the accused is found innocent he should be awarded back pay and made whole. In this case, part of the plea deal should include paying back all the money the City of Johnstown put in his pocket since his September arrest in September. A one week delay just netted him another $1250. Financially, J'town bit the bullet with the former chief, now they will do it again. Aside from that, I predict we will see him in uniform again working for another police agency. That's how it works in Fulton County.

If he quits then there is no claim for unjustified termination. It all goes down to dollars and cents.

Are there different ramifications if he is fired verses risignation? WHy are they hoping resignation is par of the deal why not just fire him?

This is a no win situation all the way around, I feel bad for both familys. Let's face he made some bad choices and now he will pay for it the rest of his life so will his kids and wife or will it be ex-wife?
