I expect my employees to set a higher standard of conduct and this case just shows that people can disappoint you. I have the greatest respect for the job I’m entrusted with and I expect my people to have that respect also. We have been working on this case for a month and I feel both relieved and embarrassed to bring it to a close. I will not tolerate any one mistreating the public or our inmates. We will continue to do what is right no matter what the consequences. I appreciate the trust the people have put in me and my employees and we will always try to earn it.”
