If you know of a cover-up, then why don't you take it to a higher authority? Everyone is accountable.

Check the Yellow Medicine County jail roster. I don't believe the sheriff would cover for that guy & the guy is being held accountable.

What's going on here? Would seem prudent to have some investigative reporting?

Check the Nov. 11 crime report. Jackson, if what you are talking about is on that one it happened on the 9th, so it wouldn't be reported that day. There's a 44 yr old on the 11th.

Yes, the arrest listed on the 11th records to be our jail administrator. I fully expect the county's zero tolerance policy for DWI's to be upheld, regardless of the criminal's excuse for his actions.

I'm not quite sure I'm familiar with all the details of this line of comments, but I would suggest that if the county has a zero-tolerance policy, then the policy on its face is flawed. Zero-tolerance, as a concept, is a misnomer. There are always extenuating circumstances that play into personnel decisions, and to suggest otherwise is simply a misunderstanding of how personnel decisions are made. It is my hope that zero-tolerance policies are one day eviscerated from the public discourse and replaced with a term that better represents the proper administration of personnel.

You do realize how pathetic you sound at this point, don't you?

eburke, lets make an excuse for every misbehavior then? Hey, murderers were under duress or temporarily insane. So and so was mad at their ex so they drank and drove... This was NOT the first time said person did this, just the first time he was convicted. The excuses will follow... You're only setting yourself up to HAVE to excuse violation of policy/law with your position. This guy's professional demeanor has been to put the screws to everyone else. It's time to live by the sword, die by the sword, mr. jail administrator.

Wondering if anyone can provide an update on what has happened with this employee? Still employed? Paid leave? Conviction on DUI?

The citizens of Marshall and Lyon County deserve an explanation of the jail administrator's sentence and job status in light of this conviction. A person in charge of the jail should be held to the highest standards, especially when he seems to hold everyone else to those standards.
