Deputy dismissed in sex case
Nearly one year after admitting he had sex with an informant he met through his work with the Washington County Narcotics Task Force, Todd Robert McCall has been dismissed from his job.
"A Jan. 16 administrative hearing was held and on Feb. 16, McCall was informed that he was terminated," Washington County Sheriff Charles Mades said Tuesday.
The 30-day procedure follows the guidelines of the Law Enforcement Officers' Bill of Rights, which is state law, Mades said.
He wouldn't comment further, citing the closed nature of the administrative hearing.
Efforts to reach McCall were unsuccessful.
In early 1997, McCall, 34, was suspended with pay after he was brought up on charges.
On March 18, 1997, McCall pleaded guilty in Allegany County District Court to a misdemeanor count of misconduct in office.
Allegany County District Judge Timothy Finan sentenced McCall to a one-year suspended jail sentence, fined him $500 and placed him on unsupervised probation for three years.
