The Sheriff’s Department moved in April to fire Neu, who was previously accused in a lawsuit of sexually assaulting three inmates. Agency Chief of Staff Eileen Hirst confirmed this week that Neu is no longer with the department.As the investigation went on, Chiba and Jones were moved to positions in which they do not come in contact with prisoners. Because Chiba was charged only with misdemeanors, he was still in that position Tuesday, but Jones was placed on unpaid administrative leave, Hirst said.
All the sheriffs deputies are complicit. A silly misdemeanor charge against only one other deputy is ridiculous when obviously everyone knew what Neu was up to.
